Organizations are struggling to keep up with the pace of change.
Decisions drag on for weeks or months. People are frustrated. We're overwhelmed by the complexity of our age. And the constant flow of meetings and email distracts us from the actual work. Our most important institutions are running on an operating system that was designed over 100 years ago for a world that no longer exists.
Lasting change can’t come from above. It has to come from within.
What will you do? Your first instinct might be to lead. To pronounce the change. To hire someone to design the future and play it back to you in the boardroom. But lasting change can't come from above. It has to come from within.
Your job in this moment of transition and transformation is to create and protect the space for continuous participatory change – the hallmark of all resilient cultures.
We help you and your team create the context, the space, the inspiration, and the path to a new way of working and organizing that unlocks a whole new level of performance. We do this by piloting a new OS and inviting the organization to the change in successive waves.
When the first few teams start working in a new way, you'll see mindsets change and behavior spread. Transformation will go from something you do, to something you release. It’s hard to watch a team down the hall sitting together, highly engaged, unbound by process, shipping work every week, and getting accolades for it, and not wonder why the whole company doesn’t work that way. When that time comes, all you'll have to do, is get out of the way. And get back to work.
