Here are some signs that you and members of your change team are making progress as emerging leaders:
- You continue to engage in open dialogue with colleagues regarding the change initiative and modify the goals, as needed.
- You regularly assess the impact of the change efforts to determine whether individual and collective action activities are effective or not.
- You remain committed to pivoting and trying new ideas when the original strategies are not as effective as anticipated.
- You support and contribute to colleagues’ emergence as change agents (Ortner, 2004).
