A leader is a creative person: he or she sees things that don’t exist now and brings them to life. They are willing to go where no one has gone before. A great leader will set their sights on a goal with a clear understanding that making the attempt is a necessary step to achieving the goal.
Global or organizational change is often the hardest to introduce and experience because many more people are affected and the impact is different for each person. Leaders understand this and plan for it. The best place for you to start is by developing a formal global change strategy. This is your leadership team’s big picture plan for the transformation and identification of all the issues.
The contents of an effective global change strategy are:
A clear vision of the end-state.
An integration of the plan with any small-scale changes already in progress.
A decision to be in the learning mode.
An ongoing commitment from every leader.
Tactics for improving the process and speeding up the pace of change.
Tactics for shifting and reinforcing behaviors.
