    • Innovative Change - Rethinking the Rules: 4 Leadership Patterns Which Hinder Innovative Change March 2014
    • Innovation drives the heart of every exceptional business, and successful innovative change relies on effective leadership. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 2 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • Leaders must be open to new opportunities, find ways to be innovative and be willing to change their own mindsets and behaviours. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 3 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • Unfortunately, leaders often hold themselves and their organisation back when it comes to making innovative change. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 4 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • What blocks these leaders from rethinking the rules and making innovative change? © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 5 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • A Harvard Business Review article - Stop Holding Yourself Back - identified 4 common patterns seen in leaders who hinder innovative change. We summarise those patterns in the following slides. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 6 (*Read the HBR article here ) WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 7 Leading is not about you, your personal goals or charisma. Pattern #1 – Not understanding the definition of leadership. WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • Failing to understand that leadership is about making others better and unlocking innovation in those individuals is a formula for failure. This pattern reflects a basic misunderstanding of the role of leadership. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 8 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 9 Acting like a leader can get in the way of leading. Pattern #2 – Being distracted by your personal or public image. WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • Falling victim to a self-serving image (i.e. The need to look smart.) gets in the way of learning, taking risks, and asking for or accepting help. This pattern limits a leader’s choice of tools and actions to influence others. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 10 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 11 Filtering data to serve personal needs hinders decision-making. WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM Pattern #3 – Turning competitors into enemies.
    • Misperceiving behaviours or motives of others limits leadership, silences open conversations, and inhibits employee engagement. This pattern creates an environment of distrust which results in leaders making the wrong decisions. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 12 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 13 Failing to act without complete buy-in from stakeholders. Pattern #4 – Overly waiting for permission from others. WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • Stalling in order to always seek permission from the organisation, senior team or the Board before acting on what one believes is the right thing, shows a lack of character and audacity. This pattern leads to missed innovation opportunities or never embarking on innovative change in the first place. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 14 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • How do leaders break free from these patterns, help their team members flourish and support their organisations successfully with innovative change? © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 15 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
    • We’ll share those answers in our next presentation - 4 Strategies to Break Leadership Patterns that Hinder Innovative Change. © WiserChangeTM – Commercial in Confidence 16 WWW.WISERCHANGE.COM
