To prepare to learn communities to be redefined and prosper in a world of complexity and unpredictability, it is challenging to engage with these levers of change and opportunity. As we deal with the COVID-19 virus, a sandbox suitable for using adaptive thinking, we are going through a complex and uncertain case. All of these likely scenarios will require staff development on an individual and community level in order to be successful. Building sustainable Leaders’ understanding of emotional intelligence and personal qualities is necessary for establishing fruitful work connections in teams, committees, and educational institutions. These elements lay the foundation for the importance of coaching, one of the most effective change agents, in helping emerging leaders in education.
