Leadership agility helps organisations adapt to change successfully

Organisational longevity hinges on the ability to adapt to changes in the environment and markets, manage change, and foster innovation. Effective leaders enable change management success by having the ability to:

  • Create a vision and strategy for change that aligns with the organisation's goals and values
  • Foster an adaptive culture by leading by example, encouraging experimentation, and taking calculated risks
  • Build a collaborative team environment that is open to new ideas and encourages learning from failure
  • Identify and respond quickly to changes in the environment to keep the attainment of long-term goals viable
  • Empower employees to make decisions and take action quickly

Navigating change requires an agile approach to leadership

Change is a constant in any business. Leaders must be able to adapt. Organisations—and their leaders—must experiment, try new things, and be open to new ideas. Through Blanchard's change and agility programmes, your leaders learn how to:

Encourage innovation throughout the organisation

Innovation doesn’t belong to a specific role or department. Blanchard believes leaders should actively encourage all team members to think creatively and develop new and innovative solutions that move the company forward.

Create a culture of continuous learning

Provide a mix of formal training programmes, one-to-one feedback and coaching, peer-to-peer learning opportunities, and stretch assignments.

Adapt quickly to change

While it is impossible to anticipate what changes will affect your business, it’s important to respond in an intentional, integrated and timely manner. Effective leaders have a plan for managing change and are open to new ideas and approaches.
