Much has been said about IQ and EQ, but what leaders need now in this quick-shifting business environment is AI (Adaptability Intelligence) – the Emotional and Social Intelligence Leadership Competency that entails having the flexibility to handle change, balance multiple demands, and adapt to new situations with fresh ideas. (Goleman et al., 2017). This flexibility requires emotional maturity, a critical skill that we at ASB rank among the top Smart skills of the future.

What does adaptable leadership look like? Think of it like water – shapeshifting to meet challenges as they arise; persistently carving through obstacles while remaining gentle and yielding on the surface; and finding new paths to flow towards even when seemingly trapped – all while remaining clean and pure by being consistently authentic.

In this course, emerging mid-level leaders and managers will be equipped with a toolkit to help them navigate the shifting waters of uncertainty, while leading with courage and humanity to thrive in times of great change.


Any experienced functional heads managing multiple teams or anyone who wishes to develop breakthrough leadership skills.

“The best leaders are fluid like water, adapting to the environment they find themselves in. In today’s increasingly digital world, leaders must navigate unchartered virtual environments all while continuing to engender respect and deliver results.”

If You Are a Leader or Manager Engaged In:

  • Leading and managing from the middle
  • Navigating high-stakes, crucial conversations where opinions and priorities may vary
  • Digital transformation or change management projects
  • Networking and gaining feedback from peers/colleagues from other industries
  • Revitalizing the mind, body and soul and harnessing the energy required to lead effectively



At the end of the program, participants will be able to:

Find and harness each individual’s source of leadership energy
Adapt personal leadership strategies and styles to different situations
Drive difficult conversations
Lead initiatives and interact in an emotionally intelligent way
Create a high-performance culture by developing and empowering teams
