"Those who exercise leadership know that in reality, leadership is a dance with danger. You put your life, your career, and often your family at risk when you exercise leadership. You jeopardize everything. To be effective in exercising leadership, you challenge the status quo. You disrupt people's loyalties, and comfort. Leadership efforts are often met with resistance, undermining behaviors, and personal attacks. It is often easier to resist putting yourself in conflict by taking the easy road, one with no disruptions, playing it safe. There is no safe way to be an effective leader. Leadership is inherently risky. There are, however, methods leaders use to survive and continue to thrive, take risks and inspire others to achieve extraordinary results." -Ron Heifetz, 2002

In today's business environment change is constant. The way leaders and companies respond to change however, varies greatly. That response or lack of response can have a profound impact on a company's efficiency, productivity and ultimately it's success in the marketplace.
ILS utilizes two models to assess a team's readiness for change: an individual model and an organizational model. If leaders are expected to guide others through the change process, they must first understand their personal strengths and challenges regarding change. With this awareness, leaders work through the organizational model to gauge the readiness of the organization to move forward with a change initiative. Then the vision, incentives, resources, and action plans are developed to ensure successful navigation through the entire process.
ILS makes change a positive process for your organization, helping you move from good to great!
