Spring 2018 Series: Working Out Your Adaptive Muscles
Wednesdays, 2pm – 3pm: May 9, May 16, May 23, June 6, 2018
These days, it’s a volatile, uncertain and complex world out there for the arts. To achieve our goals, it’s no longer enough to build on past successes, plan rationally, and bet on the future resembling the past. As organizational leaders and artists, we need a new mindset and different tools to succeed in these conditions, so we can do more than just react to unpredictable events. That means intentionally developing our organization’s adaptive “muscles,” building new capacities that we can rely on as staff, artists and trustees to address the complex challenges we face.
At EmcArts, we’re all about supporting your work in strengthening and flexing the most important muscles for effective innovation and adaptive change. Over the last 12 years, we’ve found that there is a set of eight core adaptive capacities that matter most, and which you can intentionally develop. This new series of four 60-minute webinars will introduce the eight adaptive capacities, provide examples of each one in action, and offer practical tools you can use to strengthen them. With what you learn, you can become pro-active in addressing complex challenges, get ahead of the adaptive curve, and look forward to new levels of success.
Is this series for me?
If you work in the arts and cultural sector and are interested in organizational innovation, whether you're at a big museum, a community theater company, or a small collective or start-up, this series is for you. Each one-hour interactive webinar will be led by EmcArts President Richard Evans, and will feature conceptual frameworks, practical tools, and examples of adaptive capacities in action.
