Success depends on an organization’s ability to adapt
Organizations, and the people within them, must constantly re-invent themselves to remain competitive.
As a result, today’s leaders must do more than manage the status quo – leaders must be champions in change readiness – the ability to continuously initiate and respond to change in ways that create advantage, minimize risk, and sustain performance.
Sustaining success depends on an organization’s ability to adapt to a changing environment – whether it’s an external change, such as a transformative technology or a changing economy, or an internal one, such as a restructuring or key process overhaul.
Changing old habits among employees
In a talk earlier this year to employees, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop asked a question that many were probably afraid to answer truthfully, given how Nokia is struggling to combat the iPhone. When he asks how many people in the crowd use an iPhone or Android device, few hands go up:
That upsets me-not because some of you are using iPhones, but because only a small number of people are using iPhones. I’d rather people have the intellectual curiosity to understand what we’re up against.
It’s a brave stance, and an admirable one. It’s also one the company will need if it wants to to survive.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop is faced with a lot of challenges – changing old habits among employees are just one of them.
