When it comes to rolling out change, courting is the key …
If you want stuff to happen differently, you need the people that do stuff to change what they’re doing….
Are you providing the support your teams need?
We need to be asking questions that get useful answers and outcomes, and provide clear scope for engagement
Are you asking, when you should be telling?
Unfortunately, we can make that unnecessarily difficult, by turning human instinct into a transactional process that benefits no-one. The antidote?
Teams in the workplace are no different – they’ve got a million other things to care about right now, and whatever you’ve got to say probably involves work, so it better be interesting.
Making your thinking meaningful to others is one of the most important steps in driving new behaviours.
One of the most common questions I’m asked in a strategy process – usually toward the end – is about what to do when things change.
Because, they do, don’t they? Despite our best efforts, our environment doesn’t stand still. Sometimes these changes are small, and manageable. Other times, they’re not. Other times, they're changes that trigger potentially cataclysmic shifts in our understanding of the world.
Saying yes to something new is exhilarating – full of possibility. We dream of a new future, unencumbered by the things about our current state that make progress a challenge.
However, the uncomfortable and non-negotiable consequence of saying yes it the inevitable no. Saying yes is a temporary, one-off moment. But what it kicks off is a longer, fractured reality of saying no, letting go and moving forward, triggering all the inevitable loss, confrontation and tricky choices needed to get there.
