Individual’s journey in an organizational transformation
Any change fails predominantly because of 2 reasons – because it tries to change the way WE work; and because it tries to change the way I work.
WE denote an organization – with all its culture and structures. And if any change interferes with the organization’s existing belief system itself, it treats that new change as a virus – as a threat to its existence and way of living – and kills it. Much like a bad organ transplant.
But, there is also an equally, if not more, important “I” part… “How I work”. This is purely an individual decision. And these individuals, who are the most complex system within an organization. How people will respond to change is difficult to predict. It’s all about understanding the perspective of the people affected by the change.
We need to transform how our brain thinks in order to transform how our organization works.
