All of this is useless if you can't make the change happen. So what happens when you aren't the boss? when you dont have the authority to "make it so"?
You need to Become a Change Leader! No, don't worry you wont need spandex, tights or a cape, but that would be awesome!
This will not be an overnight change, but it will pay off.
Rather than reinvent the steps to your superhero transformation, you should learn from a true Change Leader, Dahna Goldstein.
Dahna recommends these steps:
- Become an expert
- Build relationships
- Understand your organization’s context
- Plan and communicate
Yep, just like that and presto! Ok, no not really presto. But the regular tactics wont work, you will need a real plan to become the Change Leader your organization needs.
And that will conclude this series that seemed like it would never end because life was getting in the way.
