Change leadership is the capability to translate aim and strategy into reality for human beings, and to respond to this constant movement over time, thereby maintaining performance and remaining competitive.
Practice one: future sense-making united with strategic thinking. Leaders are required to keep up-to-date with their operating environment; to look out for the emerging trends in their products, their stakeholder environment and workforce/customer demographics – so as to innovate workplace practices and service operations.
Practice two: become a co-creator of a learning culture. This practice means continuously re-visiting three main business questions:
What can a company be best in the globe at? How may its economics work best and most profitably for all? What best ignites the passion of the personnel?
Practice three: evolve “mindfulness” utilizing three capacities for change leadership decision making. When leaders are faced with complex issues or circumstances they are advised to reflect counsel from those with conflicting views and wait for critical events to unfold before making decisions which will have a long-term influence on the company.
Practice four: emotional intelligence. The leadership capability to link with the fears, hopes, anxieties and potential of their workers, whilst also setting obvious limits and personal commitment to the organization and continuous self-driven learning.

The ability to utilize learning to resolve real business issues, draw out ideas for improving workplace practices, run effective group communication sessions, resolve conflict and ask critical questions which challenge and provide solutions for enhancing the company’s modus operandi.
