Change is with us, maybe more than ever in the challenging world we live in today.
To avoid the stress and trouble of major change, it’s vital to be on the alert all the time.
Constantly reviewing where you are in your business and making small course adjustments, like the autopilot of a jumbo jet, will maximize your performance.
Leading the cultural shift that enables almost pain-free change can develop into a regular semi-automatic activity.
And the first steps are to become aware and to spot-check the current state of play manually.
Doing this will encourage your people to start to do it themselves.
Remember, the best time to review is when you are successful.
And then be very challenging and honest about yourselves.
Build it in and make small changes regularly, once you have evidence of drifting off course – or finding opportunities for growth.
That makes for a consistently healthy & growing organization and reduces the need for cataclysmic change.
