Adaptive Change Advisors is committed to building the leadership needed to facilitate trust and constructive collaboration.
When things need to get done and a lack of communication, transparency, or trust stalls critical work, ACA brings people who don’t see eye-to-eye together in unparalleled ways. Using our Leadership Moments Methodology, we quickly bridge divides that restore authenticity and agency.
Why focus on Leadership Moments?
Leadership Moments are the daily opportunities that anyone in your organization can take to create consequential change when and where it’s needed most. The Leadership Moments Methodology is designed to help your team:
Recognize these moments
Accurately assess the appropriate action to take
Build allies and partners to carry out action, while strengthening motivation, cohesion and trust
Create a culture of leadership
Leadership Moment Methodology
Our approach helps organizations solve the right problems in the right order. This way, we interrupt non-productive patterns such as reinventing the wheel, infighting about the nature of the problem, and diverting attention to “problems” that don’t need to be solved.
Here’s how we do it...
1) Identify the Leadership Moment
Leadership is inherently risky because it challenges the status quo. We provide the tools necessary for people to see the Leadership Moments in their day-to-day interactions and take constructive risks. Our approach also helps people protect both the stakeholders involved and what’s at stake, managing the tension that naturally arises from choices to abandon the status quo.
2) Define the "Work" of Leadership
Often, the right solution hasn’t been found because the real problem hasn’t been clearly identified. A misdiagnosis of the challenge or missing the root cause wastes time and resources. By clearly diagnosing what needs to get done, not just what's easiest to do, we can ensure that the right problems are solved in the right order.
3) Build Allies and Partners
Leadership never happens in a vacuum. The leadership "work” is rarely your work alone; others need to be a part of the change if it’s to last. Together, we’ll mobilize people throughout your teams and organization to tackle challenges that have no known or easy answers. By mobilizing people to leverage Leadership Moments in their ongoing, daily interactions, the foundation is laid for the embedding change into your organization’s systems and workflows.
4) Create a Culture of Leadership
New work norms are established, new routines, structures and relationships are formed. Ultimately, new leadership capacities make the change both inevitable and inherently sustainable because it came from within.
While all stages are embedded in all ACA engagements to varying degrees, there are some engagements that are better suited for your challenges than others.
