TRIPLE III TIME: The “Dance” of Change
I was one of the luckiest organization leaders ever! Why? Well there is a variety and long list of very positive reasons…. but the greatest was everyone’s acceptance that CHANGE was necessary and planned as part of operational action everyday…EVERYDAY! As a result, we were able to take full advantage of The “Dance” of Change and use it as a continuous improvement launching pad for unique, innovative public service opportunities.
OK…before I go on let me explain what I mean by: The “Dance” of Change.
The “Dance” of Change is when you don’t just take change by the hand and let it lead you. No, YOU take the lead and become the change example-setter and idea generator. You assume the pro-active “Dance” position and help build the new product/service…rather than wait and react to what others design. Also, during The “Dance” of Change…today more than ever before…you take creative steps and make new age technology work for you…rather than let technology be the master of any change actions.
Progressively managing The “Dance” of Change also requires you to be the organization that sweeps customers off their feet with fresh opportunities and an always new perspective. As a result, your group becomes the go-to service dancing partner and the one that can be counted on for quality. Finally, The “Dance” of Change can only be great if everyone that is part of your cause is out on the “bring-it-on” dance floor! Change…positive change…successful change…can NOT be achieved single-handedly or dancing alone.
Remember, you don’t have to be a great dancer when you grab a partner during The (everyday) “Dance” of Change. Just be a leader.
