The industrial era produced a patriarchal leadership style that served society well at a time when producing billions of automobiles was in high demand.
The impacts of change and transformation on mental and emotional health has a global economic impact of $1 trillion annually. In today's ever-accelerating pace of change, the need to adapt, be agile and innovate, requires a different type of leadership style that will significantly reduce that impact.
I develop compassionate leaders, giving you the tools and the power to manage the emotional impacts of the changes for yourself and your teams.
When clients ask for change management, I am not sure that they know exactly what they want. I do know there is no magic wand available and that the greatest amount of work resides in the transition period.
However, we tend to spend more time in the design phase and developing the product or service, but very little time in the transition phase. This is the period where new behaviours, cultures and mindsets need to change.
Coaching the transition is about helping you navigate through the unknowns and intangibles of change management. It is the space where we are the most vulnerable because admitting that we don't have the answer seems wrong for a leader... but actually, your team or your kids usually have the answer.
This is where we take on personal mastery and learn to become comfortable outside of the comfort zone. It's where we learn how to become perfectly imperfect. I provide a safe and empowering space for you to explore the opportunities available as you transition to your future state.
Currently there is no change management industry. How is this possible in world that where the only constant is change?
Why do we expect change managers to be experts in a SAP ERP implementation; the restructuring of an organisation; the cultural shifts needed to adopt a new way of working; and the strategic development of the digital business and business transformation?
It is time to make Change & Transformation a professional industry, with a clear career path, KPI's and identifiable skills and competencies mapped to roles.
Simoultanously, now is the time to look at how we build change capabilities into the roles of the Future of Work.
