While technology underpins all industrial revolutions, it alone is not enough to sustain long-term transformation. The essential ingredient is people who will embrace the change plan and be part of the solution.
To realize transformation, organizations must orchestrate cultural change. Not a wholesale overhaul but a look at where your culture is now, where it needs to be, and what new mindsets, skills, and tools are necessary to promote progress.
Which factors of your current culture are facilitators, and which are detractors to achieving your transformation?
As change catalysts, leaders should nurture employees to their fullest potential, to foster a learning environment, and to share ownership of the issues.
LETS'S Agile Leadership Model
"The next normal, digital transformations, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution, require a focus beyond just the technological aspects of change; it requires a focus also on people, process and culture.
Change without a focus on people, process, & culture means leaders are focused only on seeing trees only within their immediate radius and not the trees in the distance, or scaling up and seeing the forest."
Change today requires a new way to lead that supports the new realities of the next normal business environment. An environment where the competitors don’t necessarily come from within the industry but from seemingly anywhere, without any of the traditional overhead.
The workforce has a plethora of companies to choose from, and the winner in the industry is the company that creates a vertical market that didn’t exist.
understands how to leverage change and understand facets of organizational culture that will propel the organization forward or hold it back.
"Culture change is difficult, and leaders usually want to put more energies toward the bottom-line. In reality, leaders who lead their organizations through turbulent times know that you can’t overstate the importance of cultural matters."
