Change: The Only Constant for Managers and Leaders

The constancy of change forces itself into our consciousness because of the dynamism of the human condition. Change is the only constant in the leadership/management process. The key to my mind is in having leadership that is sensitive to the dynamism of the market place and organization and adapting to meet its many challenges.
Jeannie Daniel Duck, in her article "Managing Change: The Art of Balancing", opines that '...the real contribution of leadership in a time of change, lies in managing the dynamics… The fundamental job of leadership is to deal with dynamics of change, the confluence and congruence of the forces that change unleashes, so that the company is better prepared to compete.'
That is the crux of leadership. It does not lie in change theories, illuminating as they may be on the path to change and our behavior towards it, leaders and followers alike.
