I’ve been stringing together weeks of adventures. Last week I was at a Naval Postgraduate School class in Monterey, California. For the next several weeks I’ll be road tripping through Washington, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin then back through Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and Washington.
While I’m gone, where will you be? I hope you’ll be driving change.
You’ll be well cared for while I’m gone. I’ve loaded scheduled-to-post articles for you at the usual pace, Quote of the Week on Sunday followed by a Tuesday morning and a Thursday morning find.
Never one to depart without a plan, while I’m gone, I’m leaving you with a task.
Please ask yourself this question: What else do I need to drive change?
This isn’t an easy question because I’m asking you to think about, to conjure up or to create something from the host of unknown unknowns (i.e., you don’t know what you don’t know).
To answer the question you may:
- Have to read a book or an article that gets you thinking, wondering, contemplating some new thought.
- Have to start a conversation with someone about what it means to drive change and what the obstacles are to change in your organization.
- Have to be alone with your thoughts for a while (a scary idea for some of us extroverts, I know).
After you’ve read about it, talked about or thought about it for a while, post to the comments your what else and when I’m back from all my adventures I’ll plow through your requests, doing my best to answer each one.
If you don’t post a comment, you won’t impact me any. Actually, that’ll be less work for me.
But if you do take the time to take my challenge and answer what else, I’ll do what I can to give you an answer that’s important to you. After all, that’s why I’m here.
Keep driving change!
