Model the New Skills and Behaviours
"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.
"The organisation will adopt change when leaders show and model the new way"
Change Management Leadership: Effective and proactive leadership is essential for successful organisational change. This book outlines the three critical leadership responsibilities to implement change: Articulate the vision, Model the new way and Intervene to ensure sustainable change.
About the Book: Organisational change leadership is about effectively and proactively articulating the vision, modelling the new way and intervening to ensure sustainable change. Leadership of Change® Volume 4 is a change management leadership book that outlines what should be done to successfully implement organisational change to ensure a return on investment, full employee change adoption, and sustainable change. Until recently, an organisational leader or manager could just focus on normal day-to-day operations, handing off change management and implementation responsibilities to other people.
Organisational change management, transformation, and improvement have become permanent features of the business landscape. Leading change can be one of the most difficult burdens of a leader’s role, but shareholders of organisations are now starting to demand that the leaders have Leadership of Change® capability. This book outlines the three critical leadership of Change® responsibilities, structured on the AMI© Change Leadership Model: ‘Articulate’, ‘Model’ and ‘Intervene’ to ensure sustainable change. Change implementation is also supported by the a2B Change Management Framework® (a2BCMF®).
