Adopting change as the point of working together. When so many efforts seemed aimed at preserving the status quo and mitigating the results of things that change and are not the same as before, what would happen if we adopted change as the point of things?
Jack Ricchiuto on working with a group using this principle:
As usual they are amazed at the pragmatism, efficiency, and wisdom of treating change as a tool of project success rather than a risk, liability, and cost. When change becomes key to how we design future projects, we work with an infinitely greater sense of joy and innovation. When action learning is THE point of projects, change – not compliance -is the key to our success.
It is hard to remember that in fact things are always changing and that the point of getting together is most often to create that change. Why not just put it upfront: if we are not changing we are not alive.
