Dynamic Leadership: Don’t be a Humvee Leader - General Leadership | WinMax Negotiations | Scoop.it
Dynamic Leaders know business, like war, is full of land mines. They never push themselves, their followers or the organization beyond the speed at which inherent safety can be insured to the maximum degree while maintaining positive change and progress. Dynamic Leaders do not push their team to the point of tumbling through a minefield!

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction | WinMax Negotiations | Scoop.it

five Change is the new normal. In a workplace infused with top down, hierarchical, departmental silos, change management is the new requirement for leadership success. With a market comprised of fickle consumers and workplaces brimming with employee identity crises, leadership success requires more patience, poise, and time-to-think – and the ability to seamlessly connect the dots of opportunity. The marketplace requirements to compete are evolving so quickly that leadership is struggling to stay ahead of the course; unsuccessful efforts to be proactive and sustain organizational readiness will come at an extremely high cost. As such, the demand for leadership that is willing and capable of tackling change management head-on – already in short supply – is at a premium. Leadership in the 21st century not only requires the ability to continuously manage crisis and change – but also the circular vision to see around, beneath and beyond the obvious in order to anticipate the unexpected before circumstances force your hand. As you embark upon your change management journey, here are ten things that will challenge your capabilities as a change agent and potentially become defining moments along your leadership success path.

Chris R Stricklin's insight:

Positive Change is the new normal. To be successful, Dynamic Leaders must be Revolutionary, not Evolutionary
