While I was reading Transforming Your Leadership Culture by John B. McGuire, Gary B. Rhodes from The Center for Creative Leadership, Jossey-Bass, 2009, the authors wrote, ”The three foundations of personal readiness—time sense, control source, and intentionality—are the keys to advancing your personal readiness for transformation.
“When leaders demonstrate through their decisions and actions willingness to counter traditional assumptions, they create the conditions for others to learn and advance, and they expand the areas of collaborative exploration, learning and development. These people will together pursue multiple right answers and advance collaborative relationships, thereby addressing more complex emergent issues and build readiness together for leadership in the emerging new world order.” How will you find the time to prepare yourself to be ready for change? In the past preparing for transformation emerged from an organizational design with timelines, education, resource and support.”
Today’s readiness is based on anticipating, preparing in the moment for changes from hour to hour, day to day, week to week and so on. Personal readiness for change today has to be a personal leadership state of being.
We need on demand skills for situational leadership and change.
