Tipping Point Leadership
The conventional theory of organizational change rests on transforming the mass. So change efforts are focused on moving the mass, requiring steep resources and long time frames — luxuries few executives can afford. Tipping point leadership, by contrast, takes a reverse course. To change the mass it focuses on transforming the extremes: the people, acts, and activities that exercise a disproportionate influence on performance. By transforming the extremes, tipping point leaders are able to change the core fast and at low cost to execute their new strategy.
By single-mindedly focusing on points of disproportionate influence, tipping point leadership helps managers topple the 4 Hurdles to Execution quickly and at a low cost by answering the following questions:
- What factors or acts exercise a disproportionately positive influence on breaking the status quo?
- On getting the maximum bang out of each buck of resources?
- On motivating key players to aggressively move forward with change?
- And on knocking down political roadblocks that often trip up even the best strategies?
