»We cannot change the wind, but we can adjust the sail.«
My Best Project Experience
A few years ago the organisational structure of a large company was to be changed. The goal was to integrate both the employees and the management in the design of the change processes, as well as to awaken their curiosity about what was to come.
Over the course of an elaborate two-day kick-off event, the management team together with the employees trained the skills that would be necessary for both the change processes and the future organisational structure: handling unforeseen events, teamwork and the intensive exchange of ideas across hierarchical borders.
It was wonderful how the management and the employees got involved not only over the course of the two days, but also actively took on committed roles in the design of the change processes, allowing them to look back today on a successful transition of the culture from old to new.
What have I learned from this? That curiosity and involvement are two important elements for successful change.
