‘Failed Changes’ Game #1
Everything changes. Everything is connected. Pay attention. (Buddhist teaching) What you need to pay attention is to the critical factors of a successful change. Here are some of the most commonly made errors in bringing about change in an organisation.
Achieve better results with circulating energies
If you want excellent relationship in your teams, get them win first! That is the way Alain Cardon, - the latest presenter of the Coaching without Borders program series - explained the importance of result focused coaching. You never see a soccer team who has bad relationships, if they are a winning team. You can only see bad relationships in teams of losers. Work on achieving results, then they will start respecting each other and the relationships improve. Therefore, teams need to focus on high operational interfaces. If we remain at the soccer team example, their focus should be on how effectively and quickly they can pass the ball, to generate a circulating energy within the team in order to double the results and achieve a better outcome.
Stress is one of the main plagues of modern times. Of course, there is ‘good’ stress and ‘bad’ stress. Some stress can help improve our mental and physical performance and some can enchain you.
The ‘bad’ stress could be when you are facing permanent pressure (for a long period of time) from various stakeholders e.g. shareholders, employees and the firm’s largest customers. The danger of this could be either burn out at an earlier stage or suddenly dropping dead of a heart attack before hitting fifty.
How to create a culture for high performance
Don’t set out to change your people. Set out to change the conditions in which they operate. Set out to change the way you behave with them, you interact with them in order to get different responses and different results. Create a culture that inspires your people.
