Change leaders have to create engagement not natural to the way we look today, but for how we want to be in the future.
Therefore, we must step back and create new entry points – new farm teams – from investing in diverse leadership programs, establishing brand new endeavors, and perhaps the hardest of all, challenging our traditional organizations to completely re-imagine how meetings are run and decisions are made. The status quo is not working.
