Adaptive leadership is a leadership framework that helps in the adaptation of individuals and organizations to the dynamic environment and responds effectively to the recurring problems. Adaptive leadership has several advantages, including taking the lead in understanding between the hierarchical layer and enabling opening up of people to experiment and creation of the lasting changes. Moreover, it operates on the four dimensions of navigating the business environments, learning through reflection and self-correction, leading with empathy, and the creation of a win-win solution (Yukl & Mahsud, 2010). Using the four dimensions, the type of leadership offers the environment for the leader in preparing better for the unpredictable business environments. That is, it has the prescriptive and the process approach to leadership and it is follower centered.
However, the weaknesses of adaptive leadership may also include difficulty as faced in shifting individuals’ beliefs and perceptions. Moreover, it sets an avenue for different forms of resistance. The resistance can be from the employees, clients, or the stakeholders of the company. Furthermore, only a few leaders will be willing to handle a case of an individual whom they have a disagreement or listen to the person who disagrees with their concept (Yukl & Mahsud, 2010). The problem that adaptive leaders may face when encouraging the follower in solving a problem would be that the problem may be unclear or does not have a defined layout; thus, giving guidance becomes a problem. Also, the problem may cause difficulty that arises when people are competing. It will be a problem in such a case to identify the solution to the problem and the work.
