Change Leadership - Model the New Way - No Props Required
Modelling the new way is the one key task leaders of change do not need props for, nor should they delegate this to others
According to Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
This is also very true in organisational change. Leaders need to model the new way, especially the new skills and behaviours. Just as a model can inspire us to dress or look a certain way, a leader of change can inspire their employees to imitate their good behaviour. The leaders of the organisation have to be someone the employees look up to and want to emulate during change implementation. Employees will listen to what leaders say and do. They will always be looking for alignment or gaps. If there is alignment, employees will gravitate towards the leader and emulate their behaviour.
Change waits for no leader and the skills required for leading day-to-day operations are very different to change leadership
