When change requires you to challenge people’s familiar reality, it can be difficult, dangerous work. Whatever the context – whether in the private or the public sector –, many will feel threatened by the prospect of sweeping changes. But as a leader, you need to find a way to make it work.
Ron Heifetz first defined this problem with his distinctive theory of adaptive leadership in Leadership Without Easy Answers. In a second book, Leadership on the Line, Heifetz and coauthor Marty Linsky highlighted the individual and organizational dangers of leading through deep change in business, politics, and community life. Now, Heifetz, Linsky, and coauthor Alexander Grashow go one step further with the new book, The Practice of Adaptive Leadership, a hands-on, practical guide containing stories, tools, diagrams, cases, and worksheets to help you develop your skills as an adaptive leader.
The authors have decades of experience helping people and organizations create cultures of adaptive leadership. In today’s rapidly changing world, The Practice of Adaptive Leadership promises to serve as a handbook to help you meet the demands of leadership in a complex world.
