Leading change is a challenge even for those that thrive on change. Understanding your style first will help you to lead others through a transformation. Everyone has a unique reaction to change and the more you know about your reaction, the greater your potential to lead others. This holds true in both your professional and personal lives. Reflect, consider, plan and Lead. Successful change rarely comes from the hip!
Recognizing when the market is changing is a core competency of successful leaders. A great leader will create an organization that is sensitive to the change in markets and will respond to the change quickly instead of avoiding reality on holding on to the past. Change is constant, those who recognize the needs of the market and respond quickly as an organization can reap the benefits. Nimble leaders lead nimble organizations.
