Creating Positive Change
Creating Change is the Ultimate Test of Leadership
The ability to create Positive change is the true measure of Leadership.
The Ultimate Test of a Leader
The ability to create positive change is the true test of leadership. Being able to turn around an entire organisation or large department takes even greater leadership skill. To be able to encourage people going in the right direction is easy!! But very few can make the changes necessary to turn around a group of people who are headed in the wrong direction.
“Your Life does not get better by chance. Your life gets better by CHANGE!! Jim Rohn
Change the leader, change the organization.
Everything rises and falls on leadership! However, I have found that it’s not easy to change leaders. In fact, I’ve discovered that leaders resist change as much as followers do. The result? Unchanged leaders equals unchanged organizations. People do what people see.
Niccolo Machiavelli said, “There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.” The first order of things to be changed is me, the leader. After I consider how hard it is to change myself, then I will understand the challenge of trying to change others. This is the ultimate test of leadership.

We Know this:
Leaders venture out. Those who lead others to greatness seek and accept challenge. For example, pioneer leaders confronted their traditional organizational cultures with some radical new ideas, ideas that enabled them to reinvent their organizations. Every single personal-best leadership case we collected involved some kind of challenge. Not one person said he or she achieved a personal best by keeping things the same. Leaders create positive change by searching for opportunities and by experimenting, taking risks, and learning from mistakes.
Leaders are pioneers—they are willing to step out into the unknown. The work of leaders is change, and the status quo is unacceptable to them. They search for opportunities to innovate, grow, and improve. But leaders need not always be the creators or originators. In fact, it’s just as likely that they’re not. Sometimes a dramatic external event thrusts an organization into a radically new condition. Therefore, leaders must remain open to receiving ideas from anyone and anywhere. The leader’s primary contribution is in recognizing and supporting good ideas and being willing to challenge the system to get new products, processes, services, and systems adopted.
