The Guide explains Adaptive Leadership and sets out the phases of implementation. Adaptive Leadership is a process based on the principle of 'sharing responsibility for the future success of the organisation' - shared with everyone in the workforce. The process is based on the knowledge that healthy self-interest, and that of others, is tied together. It is a process that is best applied to organisations with jobs requiring people to use their judgment in the course of their daily work. This Guide is written to help Champions for Change bring about a change in the process of leadership and management. Champions for Change are those inside organisations whose task is to improve the performance of organisations by focusing on the psychological wellbeing of employers and employees. Champions are usually drawn from a pool of managers, organisation development specialists, occupation health specialists, health and safety specialists and human resources specialists.
