Adaptive Leadership – Most leaders have their ‘style’ of management. They have had at least some success using this style, so they rely on it and use it regularly. After a while, the leadership style may get ‘hardwired’ with the leader, and the style may come to define them. They may use this style almost exclusively, and while they may not intend it to be this way, their people have to adapt to the leader’s style.
However, the best leader recognizes that to help their people perform to a maximum level, they (the leaders) themselves have to adapt their leadership style(s) to their people, rather than expecting their people to adapt to the leaders' styles. This is not necessarily an easy thing to do, but it is certainly a part of ‘servant leadership.’ These leaders are flexible with their leadership styles, and while they may tend to lean toward their natural style, they can and are willing to shift into other styles as necessary to fit the need of their people.
This seminar module will help participants identify and understand the four major leadership styles and help them identify the style(s) they are most likely to use. The module will also help them assess other employees to try to determine the styles to which they will best respond.
