‪#‎SMWLagos‬: INNOVATIVE IDEAS FOR SOCIAL CHANGE

Social learning is so much more than exchanging information through Facebook and Twitter. Then again the content matters if these two platforms work best for you.

Market-leading organizations habitually innovate, adjust quickly to new business conditions, and seize emerging opportunities before their competitors do.

Abigail Philips writes that Business demands fluidity, which requires leaders to embrace change and take risks. Put simply, if you’re not ready to lead change then you’re not ready to lead full stop.

Mark Zuckerberg once said, “In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks,” and he was right. Leadership is not a static endeavor. Successful managers not only acknowledge the need for business development but also are willing and able to navigate their team through change.

The prospect of change can be daunting. But if managed correctly, the process doesn’t have to be painful. In today’s fast-paced society, the difference between success and failure can lie in a company’s ability to adapt.

Fail to grow your business and adjust to new ways of thinking, and your business will stagnate and die. Change in the business world is not an option, but a prerequisite for success. And leading change effectively is essential for development.

Mike Myatt believes that It is the implementation of change which results in evolving, growing and thriving companies. While most executives and entrepreneurs have come to accept the concept of change management as a legitimate business practice, and change leadership as a legitimate executive priority in theory,  very few organizations  have effectively integrated change as a core discipline and focus area in reality.

But while we rally around trying to alter structures and rebuild mindsets, the place of initiating a culture of values should never be underestimated.  Values are the Key to Success. Values help you get Motivated. And its important to define them for personal and organisational effectiveness.
