In Conversation with Chris Atkinson: The Transformational Leader

Elysian Training's insight:

Elysian Training is very happy to be featured on the cover of Realizing Leadership this month.

“If people listen to you, if they’re choosing to follow you – your words, your ideas – you’re a leader regardless of your position and that’s fundamentally misunderstood because we associate the word leader with those people with power..” 
~ Chris Atkinson

4 Examples of Companies That Nailed Organizational Change

4 Examples of Companies That Nailed Organizational Change | Leadership | Scoop.it
The famed playwright and author George Bernard Shaw once said, “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” Although Shaw perfectly expresses how important change is, his quote doesn’t acknowledge how hard it is to carry out. 

Organizational change can be so difficult to carry out that many business leaders avoid it altogether. That’s unfortunate because when it’s done properly, a business pivot can be a force for good. We’ve collected four examples of organizational change to show you how businesses can become more productive, more profitable, and more successful.

The ‘how’ of transformation | McKinsey & Company

The ‘how’ of transformation | McKinsey & Company | Leadership | Scoop.it
Our experience suggests that, regardless of the circumstances, real transformation happens only when a leadership team embraces the idea of holistic change in how the business operates—tackling all the factors that create value for an organization, including top line, bottom line, capital expenditures, and working capital. This is easier said than done. Ordinary approaches to transformation typically deliver ordinary (and often suboptimal) results.

To achieve extraordinary results, we believe a comprehensive, highly disciplined methodology—encompassing both the “what” and the “how”—is needed (exhibit). The “what” entails the smooth movement of the many specific transformation ideas and initiatives through three phases: from independent diligence to planning to implementation. These phases will sound familiar to the seasoned executive.

Most transformation efforts still fail! McKinsey's take on what to do about it is valid, if easier to write about than implement!
