Possibly the most used word in the current world of business and politics is CHANGE! It is therefore fitting that the October issue of the FREE Leader Guide Magazine (CLICK HERE) features two interesting and informative articles on the subject:
- An interview with Timothy L. Johnson, CAO (Chief Accomplishment Officer) of Carpe Factum, and a leadership change management organization. Johnson answers questions about ethical, effective leadership and practical ways to achieve it. (CLICK HERE)In a companion story, we take a look at the practical steps in leading change. In “Knowing When (and How) to Lead a Change of Course,” Timothy Johnson offers practical insights like, “Start (too often we stay mired in mistakes)" and "If you know you are in the wrong place, do something about it. Do NOT let it get worse.”
Change, as we have noted numerous times in Leader Guide Magazine, is the one constant in our increasingly chaotic and interdependent world. We have to learn to lead it in ways that create “change for the better” and not “change for the worse.”
