How Transformational Leaders Can Maintain a Culture of Adaptive Change

Transformational leaders maintain and nourish an established culture of change in the organization. These leaders channel resources to continuously improve their culture, and with time facilitate adaption (Ledlow & Stephens, 2020). However, transformational leaders face multiple challenges in maintaining a culture of adaptive change. The challenges are attributable to complex environments characterized by uncertainty and continuous change.  According to Schulze & Pinkow (2020), the current fast-paced environments are characterized by globalization, changing customer expectations, and technological advancement. Leaders should remain relevant in such environments through renewal and innovation. Therefore, to maintain a culture of adaptive change, transformational leaders should sense and evaluate new opportunities in their sector and take advantage of them. Additionally, they should reconfigure their company’s structure to facilitate organizational change and sustain its competitiveness in the health sector or industry. 

Also, transformational leaders should connect organizational change to the stakeholders’ abilities and core values. They should create an environment that embraces different perspectives and uses diverse knowledge to benefit the company. The transformational leader should also stabilize the organization, reduce ambiguity, and minimize stress and employees resistance to change (Yaghi, 2017). One thing I would like to see in my workplace is for the change leader to integrate a mix of leadership style to enhance smooth transition during culture change because at times it is unrealistic to stick to one style or form of leadership.
