3 ways to use the blog; The 6 traits of great change leaders 

Change is no simple task, no matter what the books or consultants might say. Whilst the benefits may be many, the emotions, physical and mental development required and the practical implications of change mean that we all ‘struggle’ in different ways when asked to change.

Below are 3 ways to use my blog: The 6 traits of great change leaders 

The 6 key traits of great change leaders outlined in my blog are:
  • Compassion
  • Humility
  • Authenticity
  • Narrative
  • Goals
  • Enthusiasm
1) Score yourself 
Score yourself on a scale of 0 – 10 (where 10 is high) on how well you believe you are performing in each of the 6 elements above. Which are your greatest strengths and which are your greatest opportunities to enhance your change leadership?
Once you’ve identified your strengths ask yourself:
  • A) How could I use these strengths to be even more effective in change?
  • B) How will I use the strengths I’ve identified?
  • C) What will be the impact when I do?
Once you’ve identified which of the six elements, when improved, would have the biggest impact on your change leadership effectiveness, ask yourself:
  • A) What could I do to increase my score in this topic by one point?
  • B) What will I do from the ideas I’ve generated?
  • C) What will be the impact when I do?
2) Ask others to score you
Ask your team and your peers to score you for each element above on a scale of 0 – 10 (where 10 is high) gauging how well they believe that you perform in the 7 elements above. Which are your greatest strengths and which are your greatest opportunities to enhance your change leadership?
  • Repeat the steps A) B) and C) above.
3) Reflect as a leadership team on your collective and individual performance
  • A) How could we use these strengths to be even more effective in change?
  • B) How will we use the strengths we’ve identified?
  • C) What will be the impact when we do?
Once you’ve identified which of the six elements, when improved, would have the biggest impact on your change leadership effectiveness, ask yourselves:
