Wondering what your first step might be in enhancing your capacity to lead complex transformation? Wondering how to help someone on your leadership team build some key skills so they can be more effectively involved in key change? As part of our commitment to make the most current and effective resources available to you, we recently launched a new free on-line Leading Organization Transformation s Assessment and announced a free webinar – 7 Steps to Lead Organizational Transformation in conjunction with the Madinah Institute.
The Assessment: Leading change starts with leadership and yet in many organizations the process of leading change often omits the idea that transforming leaders is part of the overall transformation process. The assessment looks at both Innovative Leadership and your ability to potentially transform your organization. We look primarily at how you as a leader can align yourself and the organization and make changes in yourself, your organization’s culture and your organization’s systems concurrently to ensure sustainable change. During a significant transformation you will need to lead using the following approaches:
- Integrated Leadership that aligns all key dimensions: Individual, culture, action and systems;
- Strategic Leadership that inspires individual goals and the organization’s visions and cultures;
- Tactical Leadership that influences an individual’s actions and the organization’s systems and processes.
For leaders to consistently deliver results, you must deliberately attend to changing yourself and your organization concurrently. The assessment gives you a tool to evaluate your competence against each of the seven steps in the transformation process. You can then use the assessment results to determine where to focus your developmental efforts and also understand your strengths and risks.
The Webinar: With the current rate of change organizations face, the ability to successfully lead complex change is becoming a core competency for leaders at many levels. There are many classes on overall leadership but few directed at leaders helping them understand the key steps to successfully lead organizational transformation and concurrently define what they themselves need to learn to model the behaviors necessary for the changing organization. This presentation provides a flexible framework you can apply to leading a broad range of changes. During this webinar we will explore:
- Introduction to Innovative Leadership
- 7 Steps to Lead Organizational Transformation
- Define your next steps in building your ability to lead transformation
