Adaptive Leadership requires Learning and Change

Last weekend I attended and assisted in training, at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, the Executive Skills Series class: Exercising Leadership to Facilitate Adaptive Change.

One thing that struck me, is that we often rely upon our technical expertise so much, that we don't want to make the effort to learn how to change our thinking, our environment, or our paths. Change is scary, it's the unknown, letting go of our control and what we know.
