Meeting Adaptive Challenges
Many, if not most of the changes you face today and will face tomorrow will require something more than incorporating new technical skills into your current mindset...these are "adaptive challenges," and they can only be met by transforming your mindset, by advancing to a more sophisticated stage of mental development. (Kegan & Lahey, 2009, p. 29)
The Immunity-to-Change™ approach was developed as a catalyst for a very deliberate form of development. Applying technical solutions to technical problems and adaptive solutions to adaptive problems is a rich source of increased efficiency; countless financial and human capital resources are wasted when companies repeatedly and fruitlessly try to tackle adaptive challenges through technical means. In the case of adaptive challenges, when leadership development goals cannot be met through skill enhancement or knowledge acquisition, Immunity-to-Change™ coaching is an exceptionally valuable resource.
