Successful Leadership in a Transformation

After attending and contributing to two Criticaleye transformation-focused panels, international law firm and Criticaleye Partner DWF provides a four-part checklist for leaders aiming to deliver a business transformation.

Key takeaways include:

  • View transformation as a series of sprints or short marathons. Most transformations are never just one thing. Make sure this mindset is part of your planning and communication to your team.
  • Your people are your main asset, but will also be your biggest challenge during times of transformation. Those who are having a toxic effect on your leadership and transformation strategy probably need to go.
  • In the onslaught of never-ending change, it’s easy for leaders to freeze and focus on survival. Don’t freeze. Seize the chance to turn today’s ambiguity into tomorrow’s opportunity.
