MVP: Less is more part 2: People can implement change better when the demands are smaller.
When we focus on tasks, we focus on what needs to get done, and we consequently implement changes or efforts to complete the tasks. This is like stuffing as much into our backpacks as the backpacks will hold.
When we focus on people, we focus on what is essential to support them. This is like using a smaller pack and putting only the essential things inside it.
Focusing on people helps them move more quickly with less stress and trauma.
Today’s intention: Meet with your mentor or another leader this afternoon. Discuss a change initiative that has bogged down. Identify the other change initiatives or pressures that have added weight to the change effort. Identify one thing to leave behind.
