Designed by change management consulting experts and based upon data from our change management simulation, the highly customized leadership action learning program was a personalized just-in-time virtual learning experienced that offered 1×1 leadership coaching, executive change leadership workshops, team interventions, and team coaching in the following areas:
- Personal Commitment
Successful leaders ensure their behaviors support the desired change. They devote more of their own time to the change effort AND effectively focus on the big picture. They demonstrate alignment to the change in both what they say and do. They know that leadership commitment is about concentrating on the long-term goal versus short-term personal survival.
This type of leadership commitment requires courage, intentionality, and decisiveness.
- The Power of Why
When driving change, we inspire, engage, and empower people through stories, not by staring at data and charts. Successful change leaders imagine, articulate, and invite their audience to become an active part of the story. Leaders are more effective at unlocking commitment to a change when they clarify its purpose, connect it to the organization’s values, and explain the impact.
While we continuously communicate throughout our daily interactions, leading change requires crafting an overarching narrative that engages and empowers people in the organization. When we communicate our change narrative well, we have credibility — when we do not, we risk losing trust and confidence. How we communicate our narrative matters as it can accelerate decision making, positive changes in attitudes, and problem-solving.
- The Compassion Factor
The Compassion Factor is the intersection of people, leadership, and results. It is a call to action that leverages compassion as the catalyst for aligning the mindsets, behaviors, and habits required for highly effective relationships and exceptional results in a highly dynamic environment.
To activate compassion authentically, leaders must make being present and curious superpowers that effectively diffuse emotions, mitigate unproductive friction, and find common ground when the stakes are high for everyone involved.
- Navigating Paradoxes
As change leaders, we need to acknowledge that paradoxes exist and learn to be comfortable navigating them. As we encounter the tension change urgency might generate, we must ensure that it does not cause too much friction in our teams. To do this well, we need to let go of assumptions, adopt other perspectives, challenge our underlying thinking, and be prepared to learn a new way of working.
If we become navigators of paradox and accelerators of change, we will maintain a strong change vision for where our organization is headed, make the necessary real-time adjustments in the short-term to avoid downfalls, and optimize how we get to the destination.
Resilience at work is the ability to respond during times of rapid change with confidence, flexibility, and composure, while also growing and developing in new ways. A leader’s ability to embrace uncertainty and navigate ambiguity is a critical skill because how we respond determines how our teams react.
Resilient leaders are excellent communicators, relationship builders, coaches and mentors, continuous learners, and quality decision makers.
