When we treat adaptive issues as if they are technical problems, we have misdiagnosed the issue. Often, this leads to more challenges and even complicates the path forward.
In this episode, we have a conversation about leadership in the local church and what it sounds like to address adaptive challenges. We also explore what might happen if the same issue is dealt with as if it were a technical problem.

While we didn't say it directly in this episode, our journey of leading others through adaptive challenges and technical issues has come with the help of trusted colleagues and coaches. Along the way, they've introduced us to two books we find helpful for understanding adaptive issues. Here are the books:
Adaptive Leadership by Ronald Heifetz, Alexander Grashow, and Marty Linksy they refer to technical and adaptive issues.
The Leadership Triangle (refer to tactical issues, instead of technical issues)
