NEW YORK, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Change is inevitable, but recent seismic shifts in the economic, technological, and regulatory landscape have made business agility more important than ever. While companies clamor to disrupt the status quo and own their market, a recent publication by Ephraim Schachter, president of an established and specialized executive coaching and consulting firm at Rockefeller Plaza, emphasizes the importance of top-level buy-in to avoid the natural power struggles that follow. Without a proactive plan, which frequently involves co-ownership of strategic initiatives, corporate objectives can be sabotaged before they ever get off the ground.
Mr. Schachter's article, Change Leadership: The 5 Must-Do's for CEOs about to hire a change agent, underscores the growing challenges faced by executives struggling to keep pace within today's continually changing landscape. The solution, states Mr. Schachter, is a shift in thinking from that of CEO to CCE, or Chief Change Evangelist. "Executives today need to assess their team's elasticity first and foremost," he explained, "acquiring agreement internally before taking that next step. This slower, more calculated approach has been shown to drive real and lasting business success."
A former Manhattan litigation attorney and Principal with Mercer Delta Consulting, Mr. Schachter works closely with top executives to summon change and mobilize teams so they can successfully achieve their goals. Able to look at his clients' operations in an impartial light, he offers the guidance and insight executives need to build an environment that welcomes change at all levels.
