Adaptive Leadership Collective

A community for business leaders to support one another with the challenges they face modernising their organisations.



The Adaptive Leadership Collective is a safe and supportive space for leaders to help each other with the challenges they face modernising their businesses.

It was set up by Edwin in 2019 after many requests from business leaders looking for somewhere to discuss leadership related topics away from practitioners. The feedback from leaders was clear – there are many places for practitioners to gather, but very few places for leaders to discuss important topics such as culture, leadership, transformation approaches, executive support and operating models.

The ALC meets regularly around a theme, usually with a panel 
of experts speakers who offer guidance and share lessons with the community.

The Event

Many organisations we’ve been talking to recently are having challenges unlocking the flow of value from delivery. This is impacting their ability to effectively deliver strategy. The cost of this can be significant, both in terms of increased costs, but also in terms of lost opportunity. 

At our July meeting we have three industry leaders who have regularly faced this issue. Using a facilitated panel format, we will discuss:

  • The common organisational challenges they have seen that block delivery
  • As leaders, what they’ve done to unblock delivery and any advice for others
  • What challenges their organisations still face. 

Target audience

The ALC is a safe and supportive space for leaders to support 
each other with the challenges they face in modernising their businesses. It is designed for business leaders - Heads Of, 
General Managers and Executives. It is not for agile practitioners, consultants, contractors, service providers or salespeople.
