The Skills of Adaptive Leadership

The Skills of Adaptive Leadership package equips participants with tools to be more reflective, creative and collaborative agents for change. The program consists of up to six modules, focusing on key leadership skills. 

The modules focus on:

  • Leadership - Using the Adaptive Leadership framework (from the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard) we explore our individual leadership capacity and our driving intentions.
  • Team Building – Participants will experience and explore group dynamics and the skills and awareness necessary to function effectively in a team even in the toughest of situations.
  • Negotiation – Using the 'Getting to Yes' framework developed by Roger Fisher and William Ury, the negotiation training focuses on reaching agreement for mutual benefit.
  • Difficult conversations – Practical tools for engaging in difficult conversations using non-violent communication and managing yourself during times of high emotion.
  • Public Speaking  Using storytelling as a mode for crafting and delivering powerful speeches.

I can’t speak highly enough about Polykala and their work. Equipped with some really useful strategies, the participants now feel confident in their ability to practice and enact leadership, making a real difference not just in the University community, but to broader society.

Polykala work in a real and transformative way. They connect very well with the participants, making them feel at ease which creates an environment for growth. They were flexible, easy, professional and bring a human and refreshing approach to the work - great to work with!
— Anna Hutchens - Community Engagement Coordinator, Brotherhood of St Laurence
Polykala was able to develop and deliver a training that suited all of the participants, as well as the planning and delivery of an exceptional graduation ceremony. As a Coordinator, I was so relaxed when working with the Polykala trainers. I recommend Polykala if you have leadership training in mind.
