Every organization is a dynamic organism, in a constant state of evolution… sometimes expanding, sometimes contracting, sometimes getting stronger, sometimes weaker. What an organization needs at any given moment is likely to be different from what it needed one year ago, or will need one year from now. And it is important for leaders to remember this, always.
The best leaders, and leadership teams, therefore will be agile in their style, and will remain firmly in tune with changing environments. This conversation is coming up in nearly every executive coaching conversation I am having. Questions about the economy, the political environment, back-to-office issues, supply chain challenges… all of it means that leaders and leadership teams should never get too comfortable. In order to stay competitive, the ways in which leaders and leadership teams are structured, behave, and communicate needs consistent evaluation.
This is not meant to incite panic… quite the contrary in fact. The point here is to inspire reflection. If leaders and leadership teams remain comfortable in a mode of self-reflection, and are never afraid to ask themselves the hard questions, then they are much more likely to remain competitive in this dynamic environment.
That’s my point here today. Don’t let yourself, or your team, be static. Remain dynamic. The world is changing around you, consistently and constantly.
