When you want a step change in an outcome in your organization, you can’t look to tweak your status quo to get there.
You must find a new approach and embrace it.
Here are a few blog posts about new approaches.
- Instead of forcing everyone to take the same classes, try a “No More Mandatory Training” approach.
- Try scalable solutions to get more done without working longer hours.
- Stop teaching compliance. Instead, unleash initiative.
The outcomes we want to achieve are possible and we can achieve them in a short amount of time if we’ll only understand how to hook our efforts into powerful currents of energy in our organizations (i.e., people’s self-motivation) and allow them to express it fully. Nearly everything we’ve learned about generating outcomes is time-consuming, dehumanizing, and dull. Let’s put some life back into our approaches and let people’s energy carry us to the outcomes we want.
It works. I’ve seen it.
You can too, if only you’ll try some new approaches.
Why not try?
