How to Be a Changemaker

There’s been a lot of talk lately about how important and essential it is for leaders to not only be able to adapt to change, but to drive change and innovation as well.

It seems the leadership skills that worked in the past are quickly becoming irrelevant in today’s fast-paced, change-is-the-name-of-the-game world.

Here are six core skills that can help you become a changemaker (from Harvard Business Review):

  • Bring people together who aren’t connected.
  • Design new business models by combining players and resources in new ways.
  • Persevere with an idea until you see success.
  • Don’t rely on credentials, but on the power of your ideas.
  • Persuade others to see the possibility of your ideas and join you in the pursuit.
  • Empower others to also make change.
