ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP AND CAPABILITIES

Together with private and public partners sharing common goals, health and human service leaders focus on the entire community’s well-being, generating new approaches and key solutions. Information gathered from internal and external sources helps guide staff actions routinely and enables the health and human service system to be highly adaptable to change. The leaders serve as a catalyst for changing the statutory and regulatory environment and nurturing a culture of receptivity that leverages strengths.

  • The Art of the Possible: Leading Change in Human Services provides an overview of Adaptive Leadership, a response to the “adaptive challenges” the public sector is currently experiencing. This article from the June 2012 issue of Policy & Practice  discusses why there’s a need to rethink practices and services within an environment that is highly dynamic and unpredictable. By guiding their organizations and members through technical and organization innovation, adaptive leaders are suited to drive creative approaches in our increasingly complex environment. 
  • APHSA’s Executive Director, Tracy Wareing Evans, presents her views on why it’s important to assess and develop adaptive leadership skills across the entire human service organization. She also shares a series of questions that leaders can ask to further their pursuit of adaptive leadership capabilities within their organizations.
