The sixth in the Tried & True Series: Trusted Models that Stand the Test of Time.
Three things. That’s all you really need to do to be a successful change leader.
It’s surprising to think that the job could be so easy. After all, managing people, especially during change, is complex and dynamic.
Master consultant Stephanie Nestlerode distills that complexity into three basic tasks:
- Help team members focus on what’s important and get rid of distractions.
- Make sure team members have everything they need to do their work.
- Share performance expectations and progress with team members.
It might sound simple, but don’t be fooled. Mastering the three tasks demands ongoing, thoughtful, focused efforts.
Our new, free graphic, The Role of the Change Leader, helps leaders understand how to achieve each task.
