Change-oriented leadership

A change-oriented leader tries to promote exploration of new and better ways of doing things, or trying to uncover hidden potential in people, things or situations. Change-oriented leaders work towards a better future, but they may not know at the outset what that future is. They introduce change based on an expectation that things can be improved, and then learn from experimentation where exactly that potential lies. This means that some of their initiatives succeed, but others fail, and it is the ones that succeed that may then be pursued further, in order to uncover even more potential.

Examples of change-oriented leaders include change consultants, entrepreneurs, leaders brought in from a different industries to change the culture, and trainers who try to develop the hidden potential in people. Leaders who are brought in from different industries, for example, are not given a specific brief. Rather, it is expected that the chemistry between two different cultures (of the organisation and new leader) will lead to the emergence of a new culture, thereby refreshing the organisation and creating new potential for growth and development.

Change-oriented leadership is the preferred style of ENTPs and ENFPs. It makes use of the Jungian function iNtuition, in an extraverted direction. There is an optional leadership pack that examines your use of each of the leadership styles and how you can develop.
