“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing them self.” – Leo Tolstoy
Periods of rapid change in our work lives can be exhausting. The new rules, stretch goals, and on-the-fly decisions can push even the most balanced person to the edge.
A high-speed culture change can also be exhilarating. No more analysis-paralysis and meeting after meeting filled with talk, but precious little action.
The constant in every change process regardless of the leadership team, or new rules, or changing market conditions is very clear. You (and me.)
How About You
So before you start evaluating whether or not someone in your organization is making the appropriate changes in their work in order to meet the new corporate goals, take a quick glance in the mirror first…just to make sure the constant in all of this change is also stepping up too.
