How to Navigate Change with the 5 Leadership Lenses

At some point during your career as a leader, you will be required to successfully guide others through change.

The larger and more complex the changes, the greater the challenge. Based upon over 25 years of change research, we have learned that successful leaders navigate change through Five Lenses.

The lenses enable leaders who are pursuing corporate change to expand beyond their preferred lens to increase the likelihood for success. The lenses are:

  1. Relationships
  2. Culture
  3. Stakeholders
  4. Structure
  5. Information

Each lens is directly related to the primary reasons that change efforts fail. Using all the lenses together ensures a complete picture of the change. By using different lenses separately, you can bring various aspects of the change into greater focus.

Successful Change Leaders understand and utilize each of these lenses.
