Headspring Virtual Masterclasses

Leadership Skills Series: Making Adaptability a Habit

Learn how to develop mindsets, tools, and practices to make adaptability and agility a personal habit.

Mastering Adaptability

We all know that we are living through an age of unprecedented rates of change. We are all well versed in narratives about landscape shifts, industry disruptions, strategy redundancies.  However, familiarity with the challenge does not necessarily equal a solution. 

What do we as individuals need to navigate these waters? What skills do leaders especially need to develop to keep their organisations relevant and successful in the 21st century? 

Join us for a virtual talk led by Adam Kingl, business educator and author of Next Generation Leadership, to debate these and other questions and understand what adaptability means for your business and your teams.

What you'll learn:

- Mindsets, tools, and practices that you can use for yourself and in the learning and development of others to make adaptability and agility a personal habit.

- How to collectively build the organisational capacity and capability for adaptation.
