Why Change Leadership?
Management governs or administers businesses - large or small. Organising people and resources efficiently and productively is the key to good management. Leaders are often managers, but not all managers are Leaders.
Managers see themselves as part of a team, with a mission to keep things under control, including people, costs, quality, service levels, profitability, cash flow, and closely monitoring progress. People who work for managers are called employees, colleagues, workmates etc.
Leaders are responsible for achieving a vision through the people they are responsible for and spending most of their time on strategy and communicating to those they need to embrace the vision.
The combination of new technologies, major changes in consumer habits, working from home, the dramatic increase in national debt and the repercussions from Covid-19 will have an impact on all our lives for years to come. In addition, we can expect increasing automation that will replace the need for people doing many of the tasks that today provide incomes for millions.
Since the first quarter of 2020, the world has been blighted by the Covid-19 virus, which has prematurely ended peoples lives, closed down economies and changed our habits at work and play. In addition, whole industries have been adversely affected by lockdowns and the dramatic change to consumers past custom and practices.
Whilst there will be pent-up demand as the freedom to move and spend gradually returns, the debt mountains and other issues will have to be addressed and new wealth-creation opportunities exploited.
I am sure of one thing; to avoid untold misery for millions, change has to be done quickly. This requires Change Leadership, not Change Management. There is an urgency to create new opportunities fast, take intelligent risks now, and execute well-thought-out strategies quickly. Change Management has had its day - but its 'gradual improvement' philosophy is not fit for purpose in an era where gradual is just neither good nor fast enough. The world of work is changing fast; it needs to Change Leadership.
Build confidence by explaining what needs to be done, how, when, by whom.
Understand that future profits matter more than the present cost.
Involve everyone, takes a long term view, pushes past disruption.
Execute change with urgency; knows momentum is everything.
Pull products and services through instead of pushing.
Drive future efficiency over present control.
Prefer smarts + speed over process-driven.
Choose compelling - over demanding.
Drive progress - Not motion.
