As we enter a new decade the pace of change is accelerating, the demands on leaders and employees are intensifying and soon the tried-and-tested skillsets they rely on will become defunct.
Our research team found this change is driven by what are termed megatrends – the underlying forces shaping the world. Taking the megatrends as a starting point, we surveyed C-suite leaders and found that adaptability was one of the top 5 soft skills they felt they needed to succeed in the future as well as it being named as the most desirable soft skill of 2019 by recruitment experts Michael Page.
In a world that is going to continue to give rise to new and novel situations for leaders and employees to navigate, the need to be adaptable, to learn (and unlearn), is critical to keeping your organisation ahead.
Available through on-demand digital tools or as part of a blended learning programme, Adapt4 is an adaptability training programme designed to create an engaging learning experience and is underpinned by our evidence-based understanding of how people learn, behave and improve their performance.
Our Adapt4 diagnostic can quickly pinpoint the adaptability needs of your people and based on their strength and development areas, provides tailored adaptability to enhance their development.
Our Adapt4 tool can supplement an existing leadership development programme or be delivered virtually to equip your leaders and employees for the shifting challenges of the next decade. We can also develop in-house practitioners to run our Adapt4 diagnostic and deliver the relevant learning tools, all from within your organisation.
The first step is for the learner to go through the adaptability and capability assessments. The instant in-depth narrative report allows the learner to see their strengths and weaknesses, gain feedback and allows them to access the learning they need. The learner can then go and practice and learn at their own pace, in whatever environment they feel most comfortable.
The learner will engage with 6-8 minute interactive modules based on their strengths and development areas. These modules include storytelling, quizzes and practical takeaways that make the learning stick and can be used in everyday workplace scenarios. Learners can strengthen their adaptability by going through an Adapt4 learning programme.
The tool captures demographic data in line with GDPR that allows us to create an aggregate report that your organisation can use to track the progress of your learners and to understand the adaptability and capability profile of teams, functions and the organisation as whole. Specifically, what they are good at and where they need more support.
As we enter a new decade the pace of change is accelerating, the demands on leaders and employees are intensifying and soon the tried-and-tested behaviours we rely on will become defunct. So how can you stay competitive? It’s critical that your organisation develop an agile workforce to thrive in this changing work environment.
