When senior management announces a strategic change in direction or priorities, they rely on lower-level managers and leaders to adapt and develop the tactical plans necessary to implement that change. Given enough time, these changes may eventually be translated into new objectives and performance measures for teams and individuals, but perceptive leaders in the organization shouldn’t wait. Instead of going into a holding pattern until an updated flight plan becomes available, leaders should be able to quickly internalize the new information and set a new course. Businesses need leadership at all levels, and the value that leaders provide comes in part from how they interpret and execute, not waiting for someone else to provide step-by-step instructions.
