It’s about taking your group forward…..initiating and delivering change.
Change is going to happen whether we like it or not. It’s better to be out ahead of it – the initiator rather than the reactor.
Striking out and pushing forward is where the prizes are. But of course, there is a process of pain in the pursuit of getting there. That’s the dynamic that makes change a challenge – It isn’t easy.
The pain is instant but the benefits accrue over time
A bit like the new years resolution of going to the gym. After a couple of days you feel a bit sore and you start to question whether this is a good idea. You look in the mirror and don’t see any benefit. The quit rate is high.
Sticking at it and staying the course produces benefits that outweigh the cost by an order of magnitude. The change is striking and you wouldn’t dream of going back to the old ways of doing things.
Teams need a real understanding of why they’re doing what they’re doing. A shared belief can be incredibly powerful, so when we stand back after 3 months and take a look in the mirror, we’re empowered to look for more change. To keep challenging the status quo.
