OverTime Leadership 👩‍💻: How To Initiate Change
By Gillian Davis • Issue #12 • View online
You may have noticed that we have had a name change;  ‘First Time Leader’ is now migrating to 'OverTime Leader: Where Leaders Go to Learn’. 
There are many reasons behind this transition, most of them driven by what I have learned from my work with FTL.  One of my biggest findings is how many managers of today do not have a blueprint they can work from that reflects the current reality. Their managers cannot support them adequately and as we shift to cross-functional matrix organizations, the traditional management systems that thrived in a hierarchal environment are dissipating quickly and leading to an engagement crisis (Gallup). In the next few (if not many more) years to come, change will be our only constant and as we dive into the unknown we must recognize that we are all building the blueprint for the future of work. 
Leaders aren’t made overnight they are made over time, and that is the aim of OverTime Leader. A community, a platform, a destination, that will inspire and enable leaders to lead their teams. To explore and find their leadership style, to learn from others and share their stories. I am excited to start building. 
Have a great week, 
Gillian 🤘

You can’t hide from organizational change. As the world around is in constant change, the business landscape will change with it and thus creates the ‘Era of Always On Transformation’. No thank you. How about we shift our perspective on org change to something positive and exciting versus hard and exhausting.

Mind Mapping, an exercise that has changed my life (not even kidding). A podcast by David Allen, author of the great book ‘Getting Things Done’ explains how to explore the mind mapping process. I use Mind Mapping almost every morning as a way to unblock my thoughts, inspire new ideas, and allows me daily dedicated time to capture what’s going on in that ever thinking mind.
