Adaptive leaders provide and seek direct feedback. They create safe boundaries by letting others know where they are and what they need to do, helping their teams work efficiently and effectively. They grow by inviting honest feedback from others, increasing their flexibility to meet complex demands. Come experiment with us as we learn new ways to give and seek feedback in the workplace.
