Change: Adaptive vs. Technical

Thanks for traveling with me the last several months to take this deeper look in my videos at what it really takes to achieve Sustainable Change. This month I'm exploring two ways to address Change: Adaptive or Technical.
Some changes are "technical", we know what to do or we can find out technically how to solve a problem and proceed; and we may just need support to follow through.  For other changes that we want and need to make, we know something needs to change but we really don't know what is needed. This is referred to as "adaptive" change by Ronald Heifetz. In this month's video I define the two ways to address change and describe the implications for how we help ourselves and others make significant changes If you are a coach, a manager, supervisor, director or parent, I think this perspective will be helpful for you. Click here to view video.
