The Path of Don Vandergriff: A Discussion On Leadership, Learning organizations and Adaptability

Don Vandergriff

Don Vandergriff is an author of several books on leadership and development, especially as it relates to military strategy or law enforcement. Don and I wrote The Adaptive Leadership Handbook: Innovative Ways to Teach and Develop Your People, which was published January 2014 with policing and security EFFECTIVENESS the focus of applying these ideas. Don has very innovative and effective ideas to help organizations evolve and grow. He is a selfless leader who has the strength of character to talk the truth about how to get this done. He served in the Marines and the Army, and still consults for organizations in both the public and private sectors. He is also a great friend and mentor to me.
