Change & Agility

Leadership agility helps organizations adapt to change successfully

Your organization’s longevity hinges on its ability to manage change, adapt to changes in the marketplace, 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 organization’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 agile leadership skills

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

Encourage innovation throughout the organization
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 programs, 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 not to leave your organizational response until the last minute. Effective leaders have a plan for managing change and are open to new ideas and approaches.
