If you’ve read my most recent book, RINGMASTER, heard me speak on the topic of making change vs. reacting to change, or have spent much time on this blog, you know I think taking control of change is one of, if not THE most important ways to achieve career success.
Because of this, I’m always looking at how other thought leaders view change. Enter this article from Jim Blasingame at Forbes. Mr. Blasingame calls out 4 ways to effectively lead change:
- Make a strong case.
- Establish the vision.
- Sustain the changes.
- Anticipate maintenance.
I especially love his points on #4 – once a change is implemented in the workplace or in your career, it won’t be perfect forever. The very nature of change is that it is continual, so expect to update any given change at any given time!
