Adaptive Leadership was introduced to the world in 1994 by Ronald Heifetz and Marty Linsky of the Harvard Kennedy School.
Building on his work with Heiftez and Linsky and with Alexander Grashow, Author Eric Martin brings an expansion and distillation of Adaptive Leadership to new life for novices and advanced leadership practitioners alike.

Next level of Adaptive Leadership. Your Leadership Moment draws on the extensive personal research, travel, conversations, and reflections of author Eric Martin, a prominent leadership expert. His quest to 'democratize leadership' has taken him around the world―from the White House to the foothills of the Himalayas. Through stories of success and failure, Martin teaches what's possible when people discover the capacity and courage to lead regardless of identity, history, or access to power and financial capital.

Anyone, anywhere can lead meaningful change. Your Leadership Moment is an account of the democratizing leadership of three ordinary people leading extraordinary change. It's an exciting expansion of Adaptive Leadership that can help anyone learn to lead. Your Leadership Moment provides tools and techniques to discover and leverage your leadership moments for a better world.
Your Leadership Moment empowers you to:
  • Understand a Leadership Moment and key concepts of Adaptive Leadership
  • Stop solving the wrong problems and start solving the right problems
  • Think politically and mobilize others to make real, positive change
  • Stop getting in your own way

  • Eric R. Martin

    A prominent leadership expert and proud native of Detroit, Eric Martin’s quest to democratize leadership has taken him around the world—from the White House to the foothills of the Himalayas. His work and expansion of Adaptive Leadership has connected him with people in over one hundred countries, including developing the next generation of leadership for clean energy, advancing regenerative livelihoods through social enterprise, and influencing a more thoughtful integration of technology into our daily lives.

    Curious by nature, Eric’s search for the ‘meaning of it all’ took him down varied paths. Studying initially as an engineer, he cast off science and math to learn the culture, ways and language of Japan, where he served as a translator for years. Not a believer in love at first sight—until that point—Eric met his future wife Ava Field while she, too, worked as an expat in Japan. The ‘meaning of it all’ took on new life.

    After seriously considering a career in medicine on the US West Coast, he instead moved to New York City. In a fortunate twist, he landed in the executive office of a Rockefeller-affiliated nonprofit working at the extreme margins of human development and systems change. There he began a long, transformative journey with one of the key architects of Adaptive Leadership. The journey continues.

    Today, Eric is a speaker, writer and teacher on the themes of leadership, change, and the evolution of humanity’s relationship to “our home planet.” He founded and leads Adaptive Change Advisors (ACA), which is the premier mission-based Adaptive Leadership organization worldwide. ACA’s mission is to put leadership tools that drive change into the hands of anyone who seeks meaningful outcomes. Eric has been published in Fast Company, Stanford Social Innovation Review, and Environmental Leader.

    While he hasn’t lived in Detroit for years, he engenders its grit and resilience…and can be found jamming to Motown music with his family at home on many a weekend morning.
