Coming to Terms with Who We Are
What we have found, for individuals and organizations alike; is that self-awareness is our most important tool for initiating as well as implementing change. Until we become objectively conscious of our present state, our starting point, we cannot effectively move toward positive, rational and fully realized change.
Change is a permanent fact of modern business life. There will always be tension or conflicts between our need to move forward, and the unknown. Ultimately, the whole outcome of any proposed change is unknown in the planning process.
Although outcomes of change are initially unpredictable; change also has no fully complete end. The state of consciousness we draw on to initiate change allows for course corrections and re-casting of the pathway, if not the destination, as new information emerges in process.
This opens up two significant opportunities in business cultures. One is living with a set of tools for heightened awareness; and the second is the growing realization that change is a permanent and accelerating phenomena. The solution for business cultures involves incorporating ongoing learning, dialogue, innovation, and resilience.
