Collaboration, leading outstanding teams, building networks and dealing with change (particularly that change caused by disruption) are the focus skills to support the adaptive leadership exploration. Readings, case studies, simulations, discussion boards and industry guest speakers will strongly reinforce learning. Assessments are practical and designed to further embed learning.
