Agile & Adaptive Leadership

The command and control approach to leadership favoured by many specialists yields a low return and traps managers into low trust relationships. Delegation is often impaired and the team's potential is poorly realised. Adaptive Leadership is based upon quality choices about what we prioritise. How we focus our attention guides our ability as leaders to co-ordinate the impact of our staff, suppliers and partners. Developing conscious leadership awareness and strategic agility allows people to perform to their best and get the best out of others when they need it most. For us this is the foundation of transformational leadership development.
