Leaders are responsible for creating and facilitating change in organizations. We observe in the natural world that everything alive changes in order to remain alive and viable. It is the same with human organizations.
“Change management” is a popular buzzword in management circles in recent years. I don’t think leaders can manage change any more than you manage time — but you can manage energy, focus, and attention-span. Leaders can’t manage change – but you can provide people with more information and make persuasive arguments. Leaders can’t manage change – but you can reduce the obstacles which make changing in the desired direction more difficult.
