For many leaders, their primary roles and responsibilities have rapidly evolved. For example, when was the last time you reviewed your job description? Isn’t it fair to say that it has or soon will become outdated – that your company is changing so fast it needs a refresh? How about your job title? Does it really describe what you are accountable for? In fact, the requirements to be a successful leader have forced many to reinvent themselves in order to reclaim their relevancy. As a Fortune 250 executive recently told me, “If I don’t reinvent myself quickly, I won’t be around much longer.”
Without strategy, change is merely substitution not evolution.
