So, it looks like 20th Century Fox took the leap into the new century. The question begs: How do you know when it’s time to change? As a company, nonprofit, startup, or any other endeavor….What are the indicators that it’s time for you to make that crucial change that looks into the future?
One of the oldie-but-goodie book’s we’ve been working through is Jim Collin’s “How the Mighty Fall”, and it seems that great leaders are constantly asking the question, “Is it time?”
Like inquisitive scientists, the best corporate leaders we’ve researched remain students of their work, relentlessly asking questions—why, why, why?—and have an incurable compulsion to vacuum the brains of people they meet. To be a knowing person (“I already know everything about why this works, and let me tell you”) differs fundamentally from being a learning person.
Leaders are learners. They are always curious about the future and how to improve themeselves. What about you? When is it time for you to make a change?
