Change is constant. Brain research, technology, family needs, and other societal disruptions require leaders to adapt and explore new approaches in early childhood settings. How do we model and create cultures that enable all staff to flourish in changing times? In this session, we will explore and experience important elements of adaptive leadership proposed by Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky in their groundbreaking book, Leadership on the Line. We will explore understanding and identifying adaptive versus technical challenges, and uncovering conflicting values that are part of the principal of “immunity to change”. The conference’s focus is on families, and participants will use examples of challenges regarding engaging families when we apply the adaptive leadership concepts.
