How To Lead Your Business Through Transformation

Report Summary

Chances are that when you stepped into the role of business owner, you didn't think a lot about what it meant to lead an organization. You may have thought being a technology expert or having the ability to sell technology would be enough to drive you forward. Now, in order to transform your organization to meet the needs of a rapidly and radically changing environment, you are going to need to evolve into being a "conscious leader." How you think about your business, the questions you ask, and the way that you engage, motivate and inspire others will enable you to grow and transform your business.

Editor's Take

"To effectively evolve your organization, you have to figure out how to keep the people in your organization 'in the game' as you shift. At times you'll need to add pressure and at others you'll need to offer extra support, so that they don't abandon ship, or simply find ways to keep doing what they did before, resisting all efforts toward change."

Takeaways for Your Business

  • Compare two types of organizational change and how leaders should respond to them differently.
  • Identify questions to ask yourself about your leadership strengths and weaknesses.
  • Understand that you can't do it alone — tap into intelligence inside and outside your organization.
