Observation - Interpretation - Intervention

I saw this image for the first time a few weeks ago after a synod-wide event in Owatonna called Councils as Leaders. It is a model of what adaptive leadership looks like, and I now have it hanging in my office space. 

Many of us our consciously & unconsciously wired to fix problems. When we see a problem or experience a concern, we want to fix it. We are wired to observe and then intervene. 

But the strongest leaders weave another step into the process. Interpretation. 

1. Observe

2. Interpet

3. Intervene

Here are a few great articles on the observe, interpret, intervene model.
