Managing Your Business


Assess Your Change Readiness

Leaders need to be on the lookout for what today’s quickly changing business landscape means to them and their organizations. Here are three questions to help you face the challenge:

  • Do you see opportunities others don’t? Change breeds opportunity. Don’t outcompete your rivals; reinvent the rules of the game by finding new opportunities first.
  • Can your customers live without you? Customers’ options constantly evolve. If your products and services aren’t indispensable, customers are likely to move on.
  • Are you learning as fast as the world is changing? As a leader, you can’t afford to stop learning. Seek out ways to evolve and be humble enough to know you don’t always have the answer.
