After attending and contributing to two Criticaleye transformation-focused panels, international law firm and Criticaleye Partner DWF provides a four-part checklist for leaders aiming to deliver a business transformation.
Key takeaways include:
View transformation as a series of sprints or short marathons. Most transformations are never just one thing. Make sure this mindset is part of your planning and communication to your team.
Your people are your main asset, but will also be your biggest challenge during times of transformation. Those who are having a toxic effect on your leadership and transformation strategy probably need to go.
In the onslaught of never-ending change, it’s easy for leaders to freeze and focus on survival. Don’t freeze. Seize the chance to turn today’s ambiguity into tomorrow’s opportunity.
