Change Implementation Disillusion; or the Audacity of Change?

Here are a few golden points.

1 – It is never people that are disengaged but visions that are disengaging.
2 – Many highly competent change leaders perform less while implementing change due to high emotional stress and how the human brain functions. They need an outsider coach to perform best. It is scientifically proven.
3 – Matrix organization is economic but with low team spirit, it increases cost as it decreases production.
4 – Two top bottlenecks in change implementation in order of impact are 1: the leaders and 2: the team. Invest in them before the technology and methodology.

Cost Cutting is Expensive While Effectiveness is Free and Rewarding

“In summary, cost reduction is costly, but effectiveness is free as it pays for itself with increased productivity. The good news is that each one of us at our own levels can create some more effectiveness.”

Cybersecurity needs transformational leadership from women

Current cybersecurity concerns require more than controversial changes to encryption, corporate-government collaboration in Silicon Valley, and add-ons to omnibus legislation. Security and technology advancement require changes across our organizations, our leadership, and in the culture of tech work itself.

The biggest threat in cybersecurity is the human element. Behind every piece of data is a human actor, either friend or foe, which means that human nature and relationship-building should be the essential components of your security strategy.

Security threats facing us today require holistic, mature, transformational leadership from women.
