Fence-sitting is no longer an option. To stay competitive, you must outpace change.
Simply managing the status quo is no longer acceptable. True leaders constantly position themselves to boldly guide their organizations into change. They think big and make great things happen in almost any circumstance.
“When the rate of change outside is more than what it is inside, be sure that the end is near.”
To win today, individuals and organizations must be able to change internally faster and more dynamically than the speed and magnitude of external change and, to win tomorrow, they must create internal change capacity and capability faster than the rate of change projected to happen externally.
Irrelevance, and even extinction, is inevitable when leaders fail to heed age of disruption principles.
As the world continues to spin at a faster rate, it will throw off problems and opportunities at a higher rate and in every nook and cranny of the globe. It is the leader who will identify these problems and opportunities, surround himself with great talent and move forward with disruptive visions that will completely alter the landscape.
Whatever you are thinking, think bigger.
Choosing your strategy
We suggest that the change-before-you-have-to approach is a better strategy than the change-because-you-have-to philosophy. Today’s global leaders and organizations would be wise to disrupt rather than be disrupted.
Care-taking no longer is a viable option.
