ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP

A well-led organization
Will collectively adapt,
Reflect on its performance
And pursue a conscious tact.

Study its environment-
Patterns, changes, trends,
Change its paradigm
Well before it ends.

Map competitive forces,
Shape tactics on the ground,
Stay abreast of changing needs
And fill them fast when found.

Build a flexible strategy,
Loose enough to accommodate,
Listen to the work force,
Let innovation percolate.

Base tomorrow’s success
On needed competencies,
Build collective strength,
Weed vulnerabilties.

Project tomorrow’s vision
Backed up by solid goals,
Empower all its players
With clout equal to roles.

Determine where to lever success
Not fearing to experiment,
Shape new opportunities
With intuition and judgment.

Let structure serve its strategy
And culture reinforce,
Identify performance gaps
And educate the force.

Execute its strategy
Staying alert to change.
Rebound with the feedback
And prepare to rearrange!
