Posted by in Organizational Change | 2 comments

As the world modernizes, effective leaders use organizational change to streamline and minimize work activities and costs.  Where do our basic human needs, values and socialization techniques fit in?

Use new technology when leading change.

Posted by in Organizational Change | 0 comments

Leading change is difficult.  We become comfortable in our current environment and we resist change.  Often, we need a slight push (or a major shove) to get us started.

Smart leaders learn to use new technology as a catalyst for change.

This is easier now than ever before.  Our society conditions us to expect upgrades  i.e., cell phones, computers, software, and more.  Who could have imagined that we would accept the cost of upgrading to a new cell phone every 12 to 24 months?  And for every member of the family!

Our society now accepts new technology.  Indeed, we eagerly anticipate the release of the latest new “toy”.  Use this to your advantage.  Be alert for new opportunities to lead change in your organization through new technology.

Think past upgrades, REINVENT!

Often when considering new technology, we look for tools that help us streamline our current processes. This is common. Smart leaders think beyond current processes and imagine the future unrestrained by the organization’s current (often outdated) technologies. Focus on results and outcomes, not processes.

Posted by in Organizational Change | 1 comment

leading organizational changeLeading organizational change can be hard.  Most people prefer their comfort zone.  Few people have a desire to invest in a new way of doing business or managing employees – especially when they believe that their current way is working for them (“if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”).

Consider this quote from Niccolo Machiavelli who was an Italian philosopher, diplomat, playwright and a civil servant in the Florentine government in Italy way back in the late 1400s:
