Adaptive Leadership Online Course

Thriving in times of challenge & change.



About Adaptive Leadership

Adaptive leadership is a human endeavor where leaders do not rely on the answers from a book nor from an authority figure, but who are forging ahead in the collective expertise of others to chart a new way forward.

This course will:

  • Boost your ability as an adaptive leader who can reflect, respond, act and navigate change in an unpredictable environment and thrive.
  • Add to your leadership repertoire adaptive strategies, tools, and framework to lead with self-awareness, humility, resilience, and purposeful action during a changing global context.
  • Strengthen your adaptive capacity as a leader, engage with other professionals in a virtual cohort model, and discover Leadership Vision’s approach to helping people, teams and cultures navigate through change. You’ll connect individually with Linda or Heather giving you a space to deepen your personal reflection and to incite effective action. Upon completion of your portfolio and 1:1 conversation, you will receive a Leadership Vision Adaptive Leader Certificate of Completion.

This course has been adapted from an in-person cohort model that has been proven to ignite meaningful growth and development. It has been cited as the impetus for new commitments, positive changes to personal relationships as well as new positions and leadership opportunities in some cases.

Why is this Important Right Now?

In this time of unrest and uncertainty, we are invited to reimagine how we show up as people of influence. Adaptive leadership invites us to explore the meaning behind our actions, to learn to respond rather than react, and to lead others with intentionality. Now, we have the opportunity to communicate and make decisions less frantically. We can take a moment to meaningfully reflect on our behaviors in order to lead others with more insight. These sessions allow you to be humbly opportunistic and add to your leadership repertoire, making the most of change and unrest, giving you the ability to flourish and thrive rather than get by and survive.

During This Online Course You will Gain:


You will learn to distinguish between adaptive challenges and technical problems so you can engage the right strategy.


You will be able to understand what creates your resistance/immunity to change and explore tools to overcome these challenges.


All adaptive change comes with a mix of chaos, conflict and confusion. You will be given a framework to do the inner work necessary to face that. This includes how to identify your triggers and your tolerance for change to know how to work through them in order to identify as an adaptive leader.
