Leadership transformation is a process that can lead your organization to greater success. To successfully transform your leadership’s effectiveness, there are three levels that must be reached: awareness, actions, and results. But first, it will help to break down the three levels of leadership transformation and consider how best to achieve them.
1. Awareness – What you are currently doing
- The process begins with a simple and honest awareness of what the current situation is. This step is important for leadership transformation because if we understand where we are now (awareness), we can measure our progress as we go through the journey (actions) to achieve our desired goals (outcomes).
2. Actions – What you are planning on doing
- The actions you implement should be well thought out and designed to help you to your goal. There are two important things that must be present when planning: success and sustainability.
- Success is represented by your performance, while sustainability is represented by funds that as an organization you’d want to invest. These two factors are critical for your actions to be successful. What outcomes will your actions create? Short-term goals need to be tied to long-term ones. It is also important to assess which actions will lead to a sustainable organization.
3. Results – Where you want to go and what you want to see
- Once your new actions have been implemented, the results need to be analyzed. The results should be examined and compared with actions taken. Are the results what you were expecting?
- If your short-term goal is fuzzy, you may find it hard to see what your actions are. This is where your leadership transition plan can help define goals and ensure you’re on the road to success.
Breaking down the three types of leadership transformation can help your organization gain a better sense of direction and focus. Looking at the performance will help you to analyze where you are going and what needs to be addressed. By following these guidelines, your organization can achieve rapid success and sustain it for years to come.
How to Achieve the 3 Levels of Leadership Transformation
- To achieve these leadership changes, you must have a comprehensive understanding of your organization. You must also understand each aspect as it pertains to your situation. This is the first step to determining where you stand as compared to where your desire to reach.
- Then identify the actions you need to implement and what results you expect from each. Ensure that these results are achievable given current market conditions and consider any relevant industry factors that may affect your results. If your actions aren’t producing any results, it’s time to change tactics and strategies.
To achieve the desired level of leadership change, you must have a strong belief in the goals you have set for your organization. You need to have a vision of where you want to be and a specific plan on how to get there.
Continuous growth and development are key elements in achieving both short-term and long-term success for your organization. Once you have a clear understanding of what you want from your leadership’s transformation, you will be able to reach the goals that you have set for your organization. These goals and the transformation process will be easier to reach when you have a clear sense of direction.
