Change is the key ingredient of growth and in business change calls for vision, a driving team and a tight context if it is to be generated successfully as well as favorably. This is why successful leadership is so crucial in an organization.
However while talking about change, it’s important to not chuck the baby out with the bath water because, on the flipside to change is the importance of consistency which is likewise vital, specifically in processes that relate to product line, quality, revenue or even, to some extent, organic development.
So, these two contrary concepts should exist side-by-side in a healthy business. Exactly how do we create that? The solution is to understand that successful businesses need change along with consistency, change is the terrain of business leaders and consistency the territory of business managers.
Considering these two side by side, it is not very hard to see why consistency and change (in fact managers and leaders) are regularly testing to tie together.
In this article, I’m going to explore the key elements of outstanding leadership and how these components work together to create favorable and sustainable transformation. As an experienced leader, the formula I use to deliver this adaptation entails an easy but powerful four-step procedure that I highly recommend! Here it is!
STEP 1– ASK YOURSELF THE TOUGH QUESTIONS
STEP 2– FEELING THE MOTIVE
STEP 3– DESIGN A SIMPLE PLAN OF ACTION
STEP 4– ACHIEVE POSITIVE & SUSTAINABLE CHANGE.
Notably, as leader, the code of conduct or ‘context’ you develop around your group as well as its behaviour is pivotal to their capacity to unify and then accomplish results. Your group will certainly look to you to live by this code at all times and when you do it will certainly start to have a life all of its own.
This is where staying on track and also attaining positive and sustainable change needs your individual dedication, nerve as well as discipline: being consistent with the message you teach and getting in touch with your group in a genuine fashion when delivering it is important.
Your capacity to create and maintain a strong context is directly proportional to your ability to do these things, and with a solid context your group will self manage; self align; move mountains; and deliver the favorable and lasting changes you desire.
My suggestion– Take a deep breath and be prepared to be human, to admit error and to be open to change yourself. You will be valued and also followed as a leader in a far more compelling manner when you have the guts to do these things.
