To be effective in change management you must be highly creative and have the ability to see alternate ways of doing things. Remaining open to new ideas and innovations, and exhibiting an agile and flexible manner in the way you work.
Leading change requires a level of autonomy in the leader, the ability to give the team autonomy, and the ability and comfort in making decisions and taking risks. An intuition for change, and the confidence that when things change you can trust in your gut will be highly beneficial when it comes to change management. As with all leadership gaining complete buy-in is the path to success.
The facet is measured in the following areas:
Agility and flexibility - are you able to divide tasks into short phases of work and frequent reassessment and adaptation of plans?
Collaborative - are you happy contributing to the team and enjoy being part of a team?
Creative - are you imaginative and able to “blue sky” think outside of the known?
Leading change and autonomy - are you able to take control and not waiver when making decisions?
Idealism - do you believe things can be better or be done better?
Influence - do you have the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself?
Intuition and responsiveness - do you nase what you do on what you feel to be true even without conscious reasoning? Are you instinctive?
You are able to handle risk and change well and have no qualms about making decisions that you believe are best for your business.
You are sometimes able to handle risk and change but are not eager to step up and take responsibility for that change day-to-day.
You do not handle risk and chance well and therefore would not be able to inspire others to take on risk and change with you.
Being adaptive to change is not everyone’s forte, and that is okay. Trusting your leadership and trusting those on your team can have a big impact on how effective you are at managing change.
