“The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence – it is to act with yesterday’s logic” – Peter Drucker
“The rate of change is not going to slow down anytime soon. If anything, competition in most industries will probably speed up even more in the next few decades” – John P. Kotter
In order to achieve great outcomes, managers must walk the talk and lead by example. Transformation takes place when leaders are able to motivate their teams and enroll them in the vision for the future.
The challenge for most leaders is that they treat others the way they personally would like to be treated. They do not change their approach to accommodate the different expectations of staff, nor do they modify their communication style in order to achieve a better outcome.
Change leadership requires a holistic approach that is geared towards delivering results. It applies scientific insights and psychological principles of motivation and engagement instead of flying on auto-pilot.
When leaders do not question their leadership style or consider the best way to go about initiating change, they are doomed to be part of a staggering statistic: fully 60% to 70% of major change projects fail, because they fail to engage people.
By planning and leading change consciously, executives and managers can mitigate the risks and maximise the upside.
Companies can significantly decrease costs relating to staff turnover, recruitment, induction, marketing, customer acquisition, training and coaching, performance management and operations through a deliberate change leadership approach.
With forward planning, your change projects have a higher probability to be in the 30% to 40% that are effective.
