Company and chief officers at the Addison Fire Department had the honor of spending Tuesday morning discussing adaptive leadership with Lieutenant General (retired) Rick Lynch.
Lynch’s 34 years in the US Army provided him with experience commanding at all levels. From company (about 100 soldiers) to corps (about 65,000 soldiers) to the head of all US Army installations, Lynch steadily climbed his way up. Combining an impeccable work ethic with an open heart, he also effectively lowered divorce and suicide rates at Fort Hood, Texas, by outlawing weekend work and mandating soldier family time.
Lynch’s new book, Adapt or Die: Leadership Principles from an American General, offers insight born from overcoming adversity on both the battlefield and in the boardroom. He shares how to gain the confidence needed to lead in our ever-changing world.
A sought-after speaker, Lynch took time out of his busy schedule to spend his morning with the Addison Fire Department reviewing his nine leadership principles with an emphasis on faith and family. Thank you, LTG Lynch, for your time and your service.
