MVP: When we hit complications in a change process, we have three options.
This week’s emails are inspired by a situation which occurred around day 5 of Pam (my wife) and I’s Grand Adventure on the Pennine Way this summer.
Having gotten behind schedule socializing at a lunchtime pub stop, we decided to take a “short cut” back to the trail and wound up being accosted by two frisky horses.
There were multiple points at which the whole shortcut thing became problematic but each step (literally) of the way, we always had the same three options:
As we reflected on the event, we realized that these same three options hold true for many endeavours, especially change initiatives.
Today’s intention: Think about the various initiatives happening in your organization. What happens when thing don’t go as planned? As you go through the day, be aware of remnants of old changes and road bumps for new ones.
Bonus points if you caught my fancy British English spelling of “endeavor”!
