Good ideas are not adopted automatically. They must be driven into practice with courageous patience. – Hyman Rickover
Change – everyone extols its virtues.
Many claim to be agents of it.
Nobody really wants it…
…unless it’s their idea, or a change toward something they’re familiar with that has worked for them in the past.
The way I see it, when implementing change, you can decide on one of two ways to get there. Both ways have pros and cons.
YOU CAN BUILD YOUR PLAN AND FORCE IT THROUGH. “THIS IS THE PLAN, DO AS I SAY.”
PROS: This method usually yields quick results in the short-term, it even looks really great on paper.
CONS: This method is more likely to create resentment and alienate you from your team.
OR YOU CAN BUILD A FRAMEWORK THAT ALLOWS YOU TO WORK IN A COLLABORATIVE WAY WITH YOUR TEAM.
PROS:This method usually allows others to get on board and is sustainable over the long-term.
CONS: This method takes longer and is not satisfying to those seeking immediate results.
Both ways are hard work; the first way, in the end and the second way, right up front.
