Success requires the capability to quickly spot an adapt to change
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) October 27, 2015
In an era where companies constantly face multiple concurrent changes, now and for the foreseeable future, success requires the capability to quickly spot and adapt to change – a capacity that will increasingly separate those that thrive from those that wither. Change leaders who build organizational capacity to detect change on the horizon and address it in a way that differentiates their company and creates a sustainable future effectively turn their ability to implement change into a strategic advantage.
Metcalf and Morelli, principles of Metcalf & Associates, published a paper, The Art of Change, outlining a high-level framework for leading transformative change that increases the probability of success by integrating leadership and culture into the process. Based on decades of practical consulting experience incorporating integral models into solid consulting and change leadership frameworks, the material is intended for leaders who are exploring options to traditional frameworks, and also for consultants and integral students who are interested in supporting clients leading large, complex change initiatives.
The paper was published in Integral Leadership Review, a global publication that serves leaders, professionals and academics who are engaged in the practice, development and theory of leadership. It assists readers in developing and implementing comprehensive shifts in strategy by providing best practices, insights and tools that help address the challenges faced by the world.
In addition to the framework introduced by the article, Morelli and Metcalf recommend the Voice America series, Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations. To explore the organization of the future and illustrate how leaders are implementing transformative change, Metcalf interviewed Daryl Peterman, CEO of Abrasive Technology, and Mike Morrow-Fox of Metcalf & Associates. Abrasive Technology (AT) made the leap from a traditional organization to an agile/nimble one; responsiveness, something that is “crafted,” pervades AT’s people, culture, and processes. Peterman and Morrow-Fox discussed characteristics of the organization of the future.
For people interested in learning more about the trends that leaders and organizations face now and in the foreseeable future, Metcalf’s interview with Leadership 2050 authors provides valuable information about emerging trends and the role leaders will play in managing in an increasingly complex environment. This interview features Leadership 2050 chapter authors, Susan Cannon, Mike Morrow-Fox and Maureen Metcalf.
