An important test of leadership is defining and advancing an organizational vision as a prelude to change. Acquire innovative methods that significantly improve your ability to implement change initiatives. And familiarize yourself with the “leading-at-the-crossroads-of-change” model, which provides new thinking on who, how and when to engage in the change process. The model was developed by Olin Business School, part of Washington University in St. Louis.
