Have you noticed how many things are changing all around you? Have you noticed how the pace of change is picking up speed and seems more unpredictable than ever before? Have you ever worried you and your organization are not going to be able to change fast enough to keep up?
Everywhere we look, leaders seem to be struggling with what to do about change (not to mention its bigger, badder, bolder brother called transformation). In many cases, leaders don’t seem to understand there is a progressive playbook they could have been using all along to help them succeed. Instead, far too many are trying to put the brakes on change in a desperate effort to slow it down or even worse, covering their eyes and hoping it all just goes away.
We get it. Change is a challenge but the fact of the matter is, all progress comes from change.
In our view, successful change begins with a change in mindset. It starts between the ears and there are four things we believe are the keys to leading change.
- The ability to think in the future tense
- The capacity to connect the dots and paint a vivid picture of the future
- The courage to confront the cynics, victims and bystanders and not them hijack the organization
- The willingness to identify and harness the change ambassadors and put them to work in the trenches
