Adaptive Action: Using our Ability to Influence

Mallary Tytel


Program Summary: 

Complexity and uncertainty impact us all and so the best thing we can do for ourselves in this changing world is develop our Adaptive Capacity. That means our ability to see, understand, and act as circumstances around us change. Designed to deal elegantly with the challenges of daily life, adaptive action requires no complicated instruments or materials.  It is ready for your immediate and repeated use to guide you in making informed decisions and acting. This presentation will introduce you to Adaptive Action and get you started on influencing the world.


Mallary Tytel is president and founder of Healthy Workplaces, a national consulting practice that focuses on systems-based coaching, women’s leadership development, culture change and sustainability. She is the former CEO of an international nonprofit; has served as a key advisor to senior-level civilian and military personnel within the U.S. Department of Defense; and has created and delivered leadership training in over 40 communities worldwide. Dr. Tytel is a certified executive coach and mediator, author of three books and numerous articles, and has presented at conferences throughout the US and Canada.  In her spare time she writes and mentors budding women entrepreneurs, and most recently she co-founded the Simple Rules Foundation and serves as its volunteer Chairman.
