Leaders Who Embrace Change [Part IV]
Edith Onderick-Harvey wrote in Harvard Business Review about five behaviors of leaders who embrace change. Since change is constant, we’re discussing these five behaviors this week.
The fourth behavior is to promote calculated risk taking and experimentation. When confronted with risky opportunities, many organizations tend to ask, “Why?” Companies that handle change welltend to ask, “Why not?”
Without the opportunity to take calculated risks and to fail occasionally, innovation will be stifled.
God gave man the freedom to make mistakes, even big mistakes. In Genesis 2, God said, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”
To manage change well, give your staff the freedom to innovate and take calculated risks.
