There is no such thing as a leader, and the most effective change often comes from people who are not “in charge.”

Our Adapta seminar offers a new perspective on leadership. Contrary to traditional thinking that portrays those in positions of authority as “leaders,” Adapta defines leadership as an action, not a person. Organizations need people at every level who can act to mobilize resources — human, financial and material — so that the entire group makes progress.

Instead of focusing on helping individuals become better motivators or be more charismatic, Adapta offers an analytical framework that teaches participants a practical way to diagnose the problems that arise when people work together, strategies for intervening to generate solutions and a process for evaluating progress.
