Ask yourself: How can I put my competency to work inside my organization? How can I use it to provide value differently to a transformed world? Great leaders can put value into any object. We see hints of this when we hold onto a simple object because it reminds us of someone or some event. A rose? A pen? A lucky outfit you wear on special days? Mother Teresa’s value is compassion for children. That was her brand. What do others feel when they hear your name? What is your mojo?

Once you figure out how to provide value to your organization, your organization will be able to share that value with its customers. It may be that your value requires you to move into a new part of the organization. That’s okay. Many people find that they are in the right organization but in the wrong department to maximize their best selves. Be open-minded about where you belong and can do the most good.

Previously, Don Tennant wrote about Mohan Nair, an IT guy who had written about a prerequisite for business transformation: that business leaders must give employees a cause to believe in. It turns out there’s a prerequisite for that prerequisite: If a business leader is going to transform his employees, he first needs to transform himself.

Nair, chief innovation officer at Cambia Health Solutions in Portland, Ore., is a computer scientist with a résumé that includes positions at Intel, Mentor Graphics and a few other IT companies. He’s also the author of “Strategic Business Transformation: The 7 Deadly Sins to Overcome,” and he’s come up with eight great tips on how to bring about that self-transformation.
