Leaders Who Embrace Change – Part III
Edith Onderick-Harvey wrote in Harvard Business Review about five behaviors of leaders who embrace change. Since change is constant and necessary, we’re discussing these five behaviors this week.
The third behavior is to seek out what’s not working. There’s always a need for discovering problems, but especially when major change is happening.
I once worked for a CEO who began well. He visited the branches and listened to views from all levels of staff.
It didn’t take long, however, before this CEO isolated himself. There were many significant problems he rarely heard about.
Proverbs 28:22 says, “Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.”
When change is in your midst, make sure your staff has the opportunity and safety to speak up.
