Leadership is contextual, influenced by personality, history, and internal and external organizational factors. Executives can be coached to become more flexible and respond strategically to changing situations.
Typically individuals gravitate to making choices and using practices that are familiar to them. In developing adaptability and agility, decision-makers need to be aware of their own and the organization’s strengths and weaknesses, biases, competencies, and build their willingness and capacity to take prudent risks.
Ultimately, change efforts are system-wide processes and need to be led by agile, strategic thinking leaders to succeed in the long-term. We coach leaders to develop their self-knowledge and agility.
