Graeme & Jennifer Bowman's curator insight, July 3, 2013 8:29 AM

This excerpt from this article says it all: 'The ultimate test of a thought-leader is the answer to one simple question: When you open your mouth, do people listen? Online, offline, in person, via email, via Skype, on Slideshare, on YouTube. The media doesn’t matter. The messenger (aka YOU) matters a whole lot more.'

donhornsby's curator insight, July 3, 2013 8:30 AM

(From the article): You’re blogging. You’re tweeting. You’re linked in. You’re creating videos and articles and ezines.

 

 All of that is great but let’s not forget that social media is – first and foremost – social! It’s personal. And that person is YOU.

10 Principles of Leading Change Management

10 Principles of Leading Change Management | Change Champions | Scoop.it
These time-honored tools and techniques can help companies transform quickly.
Ian Berry's insight:

Great article I love the concept of "lead outside the lines" and

"We call these informal leaders “special forces.” They can be found throughout any organization. They might include a well-respected field supervisor, an innovative project manager, or a receptionist who’s been at the firm for 25 years. Companies that succeed at implementing major change identify these people early and find ways to involve them as participants and guides."

 

In my 25 years of engagement in change initiatives that work these "special forces" are always a key to success.

Ian Berry's insight:

I like the first two


"As a leader, remember that it all starts with you. If you want to champion change then you had better act like it. The way that you act and interact with everyone will shape their perspective of the change – they are watching you and they want to see that it is real." 


Build purpose for people, it’s a key motivator in change. People will always have the ‘why’ question in mind, so help them arrive at an answer that is both valuable and shared."

Leadership Is a Contact Sport: The "Follow-up Factor" in Management Development

Leadership Is a Contact Sport: The "Follow-up Factor" in Management Development | Change Champions | Scoop.it
A review of leadership development programs at eight major corporations reveals that nothing works better than interaction with colleagues.
Ian Berry's insight:

I thought it was common sense that the keys to success in leadership development include follow up and follow through. Is this an example of common sense being the uncommon thing? From this article I like

 

"Leadership, it’s clear from this research, is a relationship. And the most important participants in this relationship are not the coach and the “coachee.” They are the leader and the colleague." and


"In discussing leadership with knowledge workers, Professor Drucker has said, “The leader of the past was a person who knew how to tell. The leader of the future will be a person who knows how to ask."

Great Video: Overcoming Resistance to Change - Isn't It Obvious? - Change!

Great Video: Overcoming Resistance to Change - Isn't It Obvious? - Change! | Change Champions | Scoop.it
It’s a common assumption that employees naturally resist change, but this great video shows that this assumption may not be completely correct. Of course employees resist change that will make things harder and take them out of their comfort zone.

That’s why it’s important to demonstrate to employees how the change will benefit them. To eliminate resistance you need to highlight the benefits of changing, and the negative aspects of things as they are now, while minimizing the positives of not-changing and the negatives associated with change. As the video reminds us, whether change is good or bad is only a matter of perspective.

Change: Less Management, More Leadership, Better Results

Change:  Less Management, More Leadership, Better Results | Change Champions | Scoop.it
Seventy percent of all change efforts fail to achieve their desired results. John Kotter shared that statistic in 1995, and studies support that number today. Think of all the books, articles, speeches, and workshops that you have seen or attended about change since that time. Don't you think we would be better at change by now?

Daniel Tremblay's curator insight, June 25, 8:31 AM

J'adore!  La meilleure stratégie de gestion du changement n'ira nul part sans un leadership fort.  En mandat, lors de la présentation d'une telle stratégie, j'ai posé la question suivant: "Qui lead le changement?  Qui va le défendre à tous les niveaux de l'organisation".  Pas de réponse claire; en fait, surtout des réponses du type: "Certainement pas moi".

 

I love that.  The best change management strategy needs a strong leader in order to succeed.   Not long ago, during a presentation of such a change management strategy, I asked the question: "Who is going to lead the change?  Who is going to promote it across the organization".  No clear answers.  In fact, I received answers like "Certainly not me!".

The paradoxes of creative leadership

The paradoxes of creative leadership | Change Champions | Scoop.it

The THNK model of creative leadershipCreative leadership is rich with paradoxes. Creative leaders are driven by their internal passion and purpose, yet they also have an externally oriented, explorative mindset. Creative leaders lead from the front by envisioning a better future, pointing the way and setting an aspiration, yet they achieve this by orchestrating a creative team, often leading from behind to bring out the best in others.
In this article, we describe the competencies of a creative leader in detail, and invite you to look in the mirror and see how you score on those key competencies. We explore the topic of paradoxes found in creative leadership and leave you with some practical suggestions on how to grow as a creative leader.

8 Core Principles of Blue Ocean Strategy

8 Core Principles of Blue Ocean Strategy | Change Champions | Scoop.it

What is distinctive about blue ocean strategy as a theory? How is blue ocean strategy different from a classic differentiation strategy? Is it another form of low cost strategy? What’s the research process behind it? In the decade since Blue Ocean Strategy was first published, we’ve fielded thousands of such questions. Some executives want to understand how it addresses the issue of execution. Some ask what the strategy is based on. Others question whether the strategy will be effective in their industry. We heard certain questions again and again and, in response, have identified eight core principles. Here we outline the essence of blue ocean strategy.
