Leaders Who Embrace Change – Part I

Edith Onderick-Harvey wrote in Harvard Business Review about five behaviors of leaders who embrace change. Her premise is that 70 to 90% of mergers and acquisitions fail to meet their objectives often due to leader’s reluctance to change.

Since change is happening rapidly everywhere, let’s discuss these five behaviors. The first behavior is to share a compelling, clear purpose.

Have you ever had a boss demand something of you without telling you why? People are more willing to embrace change if they understand the reason and that reason is compelling and clear.

Proverbs 20:5 teaches, “The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.”

A wise leader clarifies for themselves the purposes for change, then they share it with their team.
