LINKING ‘WHAT’
TO ‘HOW’
19
Linking ‘What’ to ‘How –
• Technical problems reside in the head –
• solving them requires an appeal to the mind, to
• logic, and to the intellect
• Adaptive challenges lie in the heart – solving
• them means changing people’s values, beliefs,
• habits, ways of working, or ways of life
• ~ Heifetz & Linsky, 2004
