In times of constant change, adaptive leadership is critical. This Harvard Business Review collection brings together the seminal ideas on how to adapt and thrive in challenging environments, from leading thinkers on the topic—most notably Ronald A. Heifetz of the Harvard Kennedy School and Cambridge Leadership Associates. The Heifetz Collection includes two classic books: Leadership on the Line, by Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky, and The Practice of Adaptive Leadership, by Heifetz, Linsky, and Alexander Grashow. Also included is the popular Harvard Business Review article, “Leadership in a (Permanent) Crisis,” written by all three authors. Available together for the first time, this collection includes full digital editions of each work. Adaptive leadership is a practical framework for dealing with today’s mix of urgency, high stakes, and uncertainty. It has been used by individuals, organizations, businesses, and governments worldwide. In a world of challenging environments, adaptive leadership serves as a guide to distinguishing the essential from the expendable, beginning the meaningful process of adaption, and changing the status quo. Ronald A. Heifetz is a cofounder of the international leadership and consulting practice Cambridge Leadership Associates (CLA) and the founding director of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School. He is renowned worldwide for his innovative work on the practice and teaching of leadership. Marty Linsky is a cofounder of CLA and has taught at the Kennedy School for more than twenty-five years. Alexander Grashow is a Senior Advisor to CLA, having previously held the position of CEO.

Learn to lead, no matter who you are, with the tools, techniques, and inspirational stories found in this guide. Anyone can lead. You don’t have to be a CEO or work in a management position to have influence. Your Leadership Moment provides practical tools, techniques, and inspiration to discover your leadership potential. It combines personal and real-world anecdotes with a framework for Adaptive Leadership that can help anyone learn to lead. In this book, you will discover what a Leadership Moment is, the key concepts of Adaptive Leadership, how to stop perfectly solving the wrong problems and start creatively solving the right problems, and how to make real, positive change. Author and leadership expert Eric Martin has brought leadership development to the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in over one hundred countries. Eric’s work draws on Adaptive Leadership, an unconventional and somewhat provocative leadership practice developed at Harvard by Drs. Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky—and further refined by Alexander Grashow. Your Leadership Moment teaches Eric’s expansion on Adaptive Leadership in a way everyone can understand. Praise for Your Leadership Moment “Martin combines relentless optimism with hard-nosed realism in powerful stories of people like you and me who saw a leadership opportunity and refused to sit on the sidelines. Each of us has the potential for a leadership moment.” —Dr. Marty Linsky, faculty at Harvard Kennedy School & author of The Practice of Adaptive Leadership “An adaptive leadership truth-telling about defining moments of our times. A compelling read for people and companies who seek to challenge the status quo and survive.” —Lauren Serota, head of performance & talent at Patagonia “Your sense of yourself and what is possible will be elevated on the other side of reading this book.” —Alexander Grashow, author of The Practice of Adaptive Leadership

Complex Adaptive Leadership

In this exciting book he brings together his knowledge of theory, his own experience, and the results of 15 years of research involving 1,500 executives in 40 countries around the world.

Complex Adaptive Leadership argues leadership should not be something only exercised by nominated leaders. It is a complex dynamic process involving all those engaged in a particular enterprise. The theoretical background to this lies in complexity science and chaos theory - spoken and written about in the context of leadership for the last 20 years, but still little understood. We all seem intuitively to know leadership 'isn't what it used to be' but we still cling to old assumptions which look anachronistic in changing and challenging times. Organisations and their contexts are increasingly paradoxical and uncertain. A broader approach to leadership is needed. Nick Obolensky has practised leadership in the public, private and voluntary sectors. He has also researched it, and taught it over many years in leading business schools. In this exciting book he brings together his knowledge of theory, his own experience, and the results of 15 years of research involving 1,500 executives in 40 countries around the world. The main conclusion from that research is that the more complex things become, the less traditional directive leadership is needed. Those operating in the real world, nonetheless, need ways of coping. The book is focused on helping practitioners struggling to interpret and react to increasingly complex events. Arranged in four parts, it provides a number of exercises, tools and models that will help the reader to understand: - why the context for leadership has changed, and why complexities in organisations have emerged - what complexity is and what lessons can be drawn from this emergent area of scientific study - how Complex Adaptive Leadership can be exercised in a very practical way at two levels: organisationally and individually, and how to get more for less - the actions that can be taken when Complex Adaptive Leadership is applied. The book will particularly appeal to practitioners wishing to add to their knowledge of leadership theory.

Uses of Complex Thinking in Higher Education Adaptive Leadership Practice A Multiple Case Study

Research and theories of leadership development link the capacity for complex thinking to effectiveness at leading adaptive change. However, few empirical studies examine how this link operates in natural work settings, or explore its implications for practicing the kinds of leadership being called for in higher education today. In this study, I address this gap using post-positivist, ethnographic methods to examine how three higher education leaders, who are publicly recognized as effective change agents and demonstrate the capacity for complex thinking via research-validated instruments, use complex thinking to understand and lead adaptive change in natural work settings.

Allows readers to experience the dynamic “case-in-point” approach to teaching leadership, based on Harvard professor Ronald Heifetz’s internationally renowned leadership course This book argues that today’s complex times require a new kind of leader—one who can adapt to constant changes, learn in the moment and apply that learning to make wise business decisions. But to train this type of leader, we need a new approach to leadership teaching. Leadership Can Be Taught dynamically outlines Ronald Heifetz’s renowned “case-in-point” approach, which enables managers to learn crucial business skills from immediate experience rather than through third-hand readings.

What's Possible Now? Change is everywhere these days—at times it seems like barely controlled chaos. Yet within this turmoil are the seeds of a higher order. When a new system arises from the ashes of the old, science calls the process “emergence.” By engaging it, you can help yourself and your organization or community to successfully face disruption and emerge stronger than ever. In this profound, award winning (2011 Nautilus Gold medal winner) book, Peggy Holman offers principles, practices, and real-world stories to help you work with compassion, creativity, and wisdom through the entire arc of change—from disruption to coherence. You'll learn what to notice, what to explore, what to try, and what mindset opens new possibilities. This work can be challenging but also tremendously rewarding. It enables new and unlikely partnerships and develops breakthrough projects. You become part of a process that transforms the culture itself. “Very useful in giving structure and form to ways of dealing with the unpredictable and volatile way the world comes at us. A powerful antidote to the change management illusion that the future can be driven, engineered, managed, and drilled.” —Peter Block, author of Community “A dance manual for how to move gracefully with the disruption, uncertainty, and mystery that are part of life's rhythms, how to welcome interruption and discontinuity as opportunities for creativity, community, and greater capacity.” —Margaret J.

Leaders, coaches, trainers, OD practitioners, change agents, and students will find insightful guidance, thought-provoking discussion and illustrative case studies that will help them: Rethink leadership to make a stronger impact Take bold action to change the status quo Marry strategic and innovation leadership into a force for real change Stop making the same mistakes and start forging a new path forward From the heads of state on down, all levels of leadership are experiencing a rapid loss of trust and confidence — and the glaring absence of results that follows. Unethical business practices are costing more than five per cent of the global GDP every year; citizens around the world have lost faith in the public and private sectors; only 13% of employees are engaged at work — clearly, there is a severe lack of effective leadership. Leadership Results provides a practical way forward through this global quagmire, with a clear, actionable model for leadership that works.
