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

Join us at the next ALC event where James Magill, Origin Zero's EGM will share his experience in leading the operating model shift at Origin Zero from Functional teams to Value streams. James joined Origin 2 years ago to lead the newly formed business unit Origin Zero, a business unit responsible for Origin's business customers, with a goal of partnering with them to support decarbonisation and getting to net zero.

Origin Zero's journey has many similar traits to organisations who are looking to embark on this path:

  • Building a compelling case for change
  • Managing dual cultures of both start-up mindset and legacy
  • Tailoring pragmatic designs and ways of working for the business unit
  • Delivering change at pace

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.
