This month we start to look at Team Leadership and the challenges of dealing with change as we work to evolve as an organization.
Why It Matters
No company or organization can operate the same way forever. Businesses must constantly evolve and adapt to meet a variety of challenges—from changes in technology to the rise of new competitors, to inflation or supply chain disruptions. Failure to change can and most likely will lead to stagnation or, worse, poor results and layoffs. So why do teams struggle with change?
For any organization facing the prospect of change, the first step is to create a climate where your team learns the language of “being with change”. Learning to “be with change” will allow your team to co-create future possibilities.
To support leaders who can build teams that can be with change, begins with learning to listen for what your team’s relationship with change is.
1. Coping with Change = A mindset of being closed, critical and judgmental
2. Adapting to Change = A mindset of being open, curious, and in possibilities
Over the next 30 days spend time learning to assess where each of your team members is in their relationship to change. Are they coping with or adapting to change?
