The 3 Degrees Of Change
The biggest leadership challenge organizations face today is learning how to successfully initiate and competently manage change. We have all heard or seen the phrase "Change happens" and are reminded of its omnipresence and complexity from which no institution is immune. One of the first steps in initiating and managing change is to acknowledge the reality that change is a leadership issue. The leadership of change begins with a reading of reality and a determination to respond to it effectively and responsibly. Since change doesn't occur in a vacuum and always happens within a cultural context, the key task of the leader is to know and understand the own organizational character and culture.
