Is it time for a radical move that’s rarely done in your world? Have you been through a radical transformation in your organization?

Radical times usually elicit radical politics, radical soul-searching, and radical decision-making and re-decision-making. Radical change necessarily involves radical wins and radical mistakes, radical opposers and radical advocates which, as time goes by, are often re-interpreted as collaborations lead to bigger successes and losses lead to bigger wins and wins didn’t yield expected results.

We live in an era of profound change. There is no well-established right way for negotiating the radical. If there was, it wouldn't be radical. Even if there was a good manual, the reality of human nature is such that it would be impossible to apply pre-prescribed steps at the deeply personal and cultural levels that are impacted when stakes are in radical mode. Radical change demands a new leadership paradigm.

Want to create a vital and dynamic way forward for your professional life? Engage your stakeholders in defining a radical game and keep yourself on the radical edge of winning it.
