The one consistency facing leadership today is change. Apart from technology, science, medicine, etc., people change!
When leaders cast the vision, point others to the goal, and establish plans, change occurs. Several questions should be considered.
What contingency is in place when changes occur?
Are the consequences of a contingency minimal?
Will the contingency create a loss of morale?
Who will implement the contingency during the transition?
How will the contingency affect the overall vision and goals?
When is the appropriate time to initiate the contingency?
Answering a few questions can help negotiate challenges that occur when change is inevitable.
