Liked Challenging the invisible beast by Paul Browning (Compelling Leadership)

If you are a newly appointed leader here are a six tips to help you wrestle the invisible beast:

  • Spend time listening, seeking to understand the prevailing culture, โ€œthe way things are done around hereโ€.
  • Be a questionable person. Identify the things you donโ€™t agree with in the culture and have the courage to lead a life that is in opposition to those things.
  • Identify the crusaders, the nay-sayers and the influencers.
  • Take care not to get sucked into the prevailing culture, it is very powerful and you will be subsumed into it if you donโ€™t have the courage, or strength to resist.
  • Develop strategies to change those aspects of the culture you donโ€™t agree with, strategies to develop new norms.
  • Once a new strategy or norm is established, commit.
