About the “Leading in the Gap” Series
Leading transformation is challenging work and for companies undergoing transformation, everyone is living in the gap – the gap that exists between the current state and the desired future state (aka where the organization aspires to be.) The responsibility of transformation leaders is to lead through this gap and bring people and organizations along the way. This brings special leadership challenges.
In the "Leading in the Gap" series you will hear transformation leaders working in various industries share their perspectives on the challenges of leading transformation, what works for them, lessons learned, and what they wish someone had told them to better prepare for the role of leading in the gap.
