When i was reading transformation ledership theory i get an idea that, most successfully leaders are those who managed to change the way of doing things in the organization so as to meet the turbulent business environment. By so doing they managed to lead change.
Leading change is not easy task. As a leader you need to prepare yourself for change as well as your people. Before leading change you have to analyse the need for change. And during change process ask opinion from other members of the organization that is from top to the lower level. Then create the vision which shows where you want the company to be after transformational process. The vision created should take into consideration the views collected from other member of the organization, by so doing you will be able to reduce number of people who resist to change. Because they will fill involved in the change process by valuing their ideas.
Leaders who lead change use positive language in order to influence people during the change process.Creates awareness within the organization on the need for change for instance, we want to change in order to meet cusomer expectation, improve efficiency, etc. Also let people know the consequence of resisting change like loosing company share, as well as loosing job. Also as a leader who lead change you are not supposed to push people into change, instead create a sense of urgence and provide the holistic view of how the future will look like after change. By so doing people will be encouraged to change.
