Business transformation used to refer to those specific projects which arose from strategic planning or merger and acquisition activities. But now, as a result of our rapidly changing social, economic, geo-political and environmental contexts, business transformation activities are quickly becoming “business as usual.” There’s no time anymore to wait until the next strategic planning cycle: an adjustment to the way we do things is often required immediately.

Many leaders are tired from the constant change of the last few years, resigned to the way things are in their organisation, and wondering if anything could make a genuine difference in their organisation’s performance. It feels like it is too hard to get off (or reposition!) a hamster wheel that is running a little too fast for comfort, and which is controlled by so many variables that we seemingly can't influence.

In our own lives, we know that change starts with us. It can be harder to own that to be true, too, in our organisations.

The health and function of an organisation is a direct reflection of the health and function of its individual leaders, and how those leaders operate as a team. When we go on the brave journey of truly looking at ourselves as individual leaders and as a leadership team, then genuine change in the way we do things (and, thus, the outcomes we get) becomes a real possibility. Business transformation - as opposed to undertaking "business transformation" activities - can actually happen.

Bernie partners with leaders who want to run organizations that are inspired by change, that thrive on disruption, and which respond quickly and effectively to big shifts in operating context… and who are also willing to do the work to become the leaders required by such an organisation.
