Course Description


The Oxford Adaptive and Transformational Leadership training course is an essential skill set for individuals seeking to drive change in a world of conflicting demands and ever-changing priorities. Adaptive and Transformational leadership is a concept that emphasises leaders' ability to navigate complex and rapidly changing environments. Unlike traditional leadership approaches that focus on maintaining stability and control, adaptive leadership acknowledges the dynamic nature of modern organisations and the need for leaders to adapt their strategies accordingly.

In this leadership style, leaders are expected to be flexible, resilient, and able to anticipate and respond to unforeseen challenges. They empower their teams to innovate and problem-solve, encouraging a culture of learning and experimentation. Adaptive leaders foster collaboration and communication, encouraging diverse perspectives and constructive feedback.

This GLOMACS "Oxford Adaptive and Transformational Leadership" training course will highlight:

  • Recognising the need for change and being proactive in identifying emerging trends and disruptions that require a shift in strategy.
  • How to mobilise and unlock collective intelligence to harness their team members' collective knowledge and expertise to address complex problems collaboratively.
  • Embracing uncertainty by being comfortable operating in ambiguous situations and skilled at managing risk.
  • Facilitating learning and growth by creating environments where individuals feel empowered to take calculated risks, learn from failures, and continuously improve.
  • How adaptive and transformational leadership is about guiding organisations through uncertainty and transformation, enabling them to thrive in an ever-changing world.


This training course is split into two modules:

MODULE I - The Oxford Adaptive Leadership

MODULE II - The Oxford Transformational Leadership

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a 2-week training course.


At the end of this Oxford Adaptive and Transformational Leadership training course, you will learn to: 

  • Learn how to leverage the diversity of thought to foster innovation and creative problem-solving.
  • Strengthen communication skills to lead teams through periods of uncertainty and change effectively.
  • Build resilience and encourage a culture of learning and flexibility within teams.
  • Master techniques to identify and address systemic issues within an organisation.
  • Evaluate and refine leadership approaches based on feedback and organisational outcomes.

Training Methodology

This training course will utilise various proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes experiential group activities, individual exercises, mini-case studies and syndicate discussions. Formal inputs are used to introduce underpinning theory. A vital part of the learning process is sharing participants' differing experiences and experimenting with novel – and sometimes challenging – techniques.

Organisational Impact

Your organisation will benefit from leaders returning with the knowledge and skill to get the best from themselves and inspire others to engage more fully to improve their performance in today’s fast-moving environment. In summary, your organisation will benefit from:
