From Adaptive Leadership to Adaptive Living, a conversation with Marty Linsky on navigating the challenges of constant change in politics, in organizations, and in everyday life.

Some insights related to the adaptive mindset include:

  • Authenticity evolves; spontaneity is not authenticity.
  • Means and ends are interdependent.
  • Loss is inextricably tied to progress and growth. Therefore, we are all grief counselors.

Join us for a provocative discussion on Tuesday, June 6th at 7:30 in Parish Hall

Marty Linsky has been teaching about the media, politics and leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School since 1982 and has authored or co-authored some two dozen books, book chapters, and book forewords plus numerous op-eds on these subjects. His most recent publication, however, was an op-ed he co-authored last October published in the Hartford Courant entitled: “The Red Sox strategic plan: Follow the money.” He also happens to have been married for 43 years to Tad’s cousin, Lynn.
