What is an "Adaptive Challenge?"

An adaptive challenge can be defined as "the gap between the values people stand for (that constitute thriving) and the reality that they face. Their current lack of capacity to realize those values in their environment (Heifetz et al., 2009, pg. 303).

Objective: Describe characteristics of an adaptive challenge. What are some values that you believe have gaps between what people stand for and the reality that they are in. I look forward to reading everyone's comments.....

Do you have a Personal Mission Statement? If so, be proud of it. Post it here for all to see. This is how accountability starts. 

If not, what are you waiting for? Need help? Reach out...

Welcome and thank you for making the decision to seek continuous improvement. It is my goal to help you take your training and skills to the next level with relevant, current, and passionate instruction on all topics fire service related.

This group is dedicated to all those who will not be apologetic for having passion for their service. The "brotherhood" is alive and well, together all we have to do is live within it and share our passion with others.

This group is for informational purposes only and in no way is the information considered to be gospel. I encourage all of you to get involved, pass on knowledge, and leave the fire service in better condition than we found it. Our motivation and attitudes are contagious. We must ensure that ours are worth catching!

If you should have any questions or would like to just talk, please reach out to me. I have an open door to listen, large shoulders to lean on, and thick skin so the negative insurgency has no way in!

Be safe!
