The rules of management have changed. Managers must be able to adapt to a constantly changing workplace, which means they need to play more roles to do their jobs effectively. To help their employees stay the course in times of uncertainty, managers must be game to be project managers, coaches, counselors, mentors, remote managers, and change agents. In this course, eParachute founder Gary Bolles explains how to help managers become more adaptive, so that they can solve new problems as the world changes rapidly around them. Gary shares how to create an environment where adaptive managers can thrive, and discusses how to manage an adaptive workforce. He also outlines the specific "knowledges," skills, and traits of adaptive managers, and how leaders can scale adaptively in their organizations.
