Accelerating through strategic inflection points requires step-changes in strategy, organization, and operations, carefully synced together. Those are necessary, but not sufficient unless you reinvent yourself as what John Hillen and Mark Nevins describe as a more sophisticated leader.
Per my earlier article on What it Takes to Lead Through a Point of Inflection, one of two things is going to give you the opportunity or need for a strategic inflection: a change in your environment or a change in your own mission, vision, objectives or goals. Whatever creates the opportunity or need, it’s going to require step-changes in your strategy, organization, and operations. In all three at the same time.
And it’s going to require a different type of leader to make that happen. That different type of leader could be someone new or it could be a reinvented you.
