Chapter from: "The Practice of Adaptive Leadership: Tools and Tactics for Changing Your Organization and the World"
Published by: Harvard Business Publishing
Published in: 2009

Abstract

Fostering an adaptive culture will enable your organization or community to meet an ongoing series of adaptive challenges into the future. Although building adaptive capacity is a medium- and long-term goal, it can only happen by mobilizing today. Every challenge you currently face is another opportunity to both work the immediate problem and institute ways of operating that can become norms for taking on whatever comes next. In this chapter, the authors identify five distinguishing characteristics of an adaptive culture and explore a few things you can do to improve your organization's rating on each criterion. This chapter is excerpted from ‘The Practice of Adaptive Leadership: Tools and Tactics for Changing Your Organization and the World'.
