If you want to climb Mount Everest, you need the proper mountaineering capabilities such as multi-pitch climbing, glacier travel, and fall arrest. If you don’t have these skills you put yourself and your team at risk.
Similarly, Transformers who don’t possess the proper leadership and change capabilities put their strategic change initiatives at risk, which impacts them, their team, and the entire organization. The five change capabilities (J2N5) we use to prepare you and sustain you throughout your journey are:
- Optimizing communication
- Valuing differences
- Building teams
- Developing leaders
- Leading change
And like mountaineering, each of these capabilities make the other capabilities stronger and more effective. Missing only one capability can end your journey at any point.
