Change Management and Business Turnaround
Wednesday, January 27th, 2010
There are times when it is critical for leaders to fundamentally shift their business in order to survive and thrive in a new environment. It is during these periods of business turnaround or change, more than any other, when strong leadership is required as it often makes the difference between success and failure. The change may be at a structural level, it may relate to staff performance or it may relate to a cultural shift across the organisation.
Irrespective of where the change needs to occur, the elements of leadership that are most critical in terms of driving business turnaround and change are:
- Emotional intelligence – the ability to manage yourself and your relationships
- Decisiveness / clarity – your ability to inspire confidence with your clarity of vision and direction
- Engagement – your ability to achieve buy-in from staff
