Change Management Is Understood; Change Leadership Is Overlooked

The effects of change are felt up, down, and around our organizations. Change can be seen as positive or negative, exciting or demoralizing, vital or unnecessary, easy or difficult-often all of the above.

The role of mid- and senior-level leaders in making change happen is critical. Managers of teams, projects, departments, and functions are in a unique and powerful position. These are the leaders who must translate the vision of change from the C-Suite to the ground troops, help direct reports navigate the emotions of change and transition, and influence change agents to generate alignment and commitment for the change effort to be successful.

How can managers become better equipped to steer their organizations and their people through change?

In my experience in public and private institutions, when it has been necessary to make important changes that significantly affect the collaborators and the rest of the employees, it was necessary that I become my main animator, since most employees opposed the changes usually passively.

He showed me a picture of him as a young cadet at West Point. He looked no different from today - earnest gaze, down to earth affability, and unwavering sense of purpose.

10 Principles of Organization Design

10 Principles of Organization Design | Effective Leadership and Management | Scoop.it

 In the 18th annual PwC survey of chief executive officers, conducted in 2014, many CEOs anticipated significant disruptions to their businesses during the next five years as a result of external worldwide trends. One such trend, cited by 61 percent of the respondents, was an increasing number of competitors. The same number of respondents foresaw changes in customer behavior creating disruption. Fifty percent said they expected changes in distribution channels. As CEOs look to stay ahead of these trends, they recognize the need to change the organization’s design. But for that redesign to be successful, a company must make its changes as effectively and painlessly as possible, in a way that aligns with its strategy, invigorates employees, builds distinctive new capabilities, and makes it easier to attract customers.

Steve Bax's curator insight, March 24, 2015 6:00 AM

This is a very topical, well written piece on the ongoing issues of organisational structure design. The principles are sound and resonate with previous theorists such as Lewin, Deal and Kennedy. There are some good examples and strong recommendations for what NOT to do too. The comments on benchmarking are particularly relevant for many organisations seeking to establish their own position in the marketplace. Another key message is to let go of the past. Leaders need to build on strengths - formal or informal - and look ahead.
