Change, before it’s too late!
The business world today is changing and changing fast. Are you aware of all the changes that could affect the future of your business, both within your industry and beyond?
Roselinde Torres has a great TED talk: What it takes to be a great leader? She discusses three main questions that control the strength of your leadership.
- Where are you looking to anticipate change?
- What is the diversity measure of your network?
- Are you courageous enough to abandon the past?
Successful leaders do not continue to lead in the same way they did in the past. Using previous strategies for the future will make your company stagnate and will prevent growth.
To grow you need three things. First you need a diverse network of contacts to ensure you get many perspectives on the future. Second you need to research your customers, employees and prospects. The first two help you identify the necessary change. Third, to lead, you need the courage to embrace this change
Once you identify the many different issues important to your many different contacts, customers, employees and prospects – how do you cut through all the noise to find the few important issues to guide your strategic change? Time is a commodity few of us have to spare. Researching, investigating and interpreting take time. Getting help from a third party can save time and provide additional insights.
Keep your competitive advantage and have the courage to change. Don’t get left behind. Find out what’s important for your key contacts and act.
