ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP TRAINING

16Summer-Camp-Common-Good-handbook

 

     Leadership is mobilizing others
                to make progress on deep,
                           daunting, “adaptive” challenges.






Receiving adaptive leadership training is a core component of the Honors College.  Through a series of activities, participants will learn the principles and competencies of adaptive leadership developed at Harvard University and at the Kansas Leadership Center.  Seasoned Honors College students and faculty will provide adaptive leadership training to new members that will empower them to engage with others in addressing the most pressing challenges of the day. 

Participants will…

  • Gain a thorough understanding of adaptive leadership through teachings based on the Kansas Leadership Center.
  • Identify areas within their own lives where adaptive leadership is needed.
  • Experience dealing with various interpretations and generating solutions to solving adaptive challenges.
  • Have opportunities to become proficient in teaching leadership skills to others.

All curriculum will be taught by current Emporia State University Honors College students partnering with university KLC Faculty in Residence. This student-participant instruction design will give attendees an opportunity not seen in most programs.

With the use of small groups, participants will have the opportunity to engage in conversations with instructors digging deeper than the surface level.

The curriculum is rooted in the competencies and principles espoused by the Kansas Leadership Center.
