Change will cause tension (and that's OK‪)‬ Strategy and the Virtual Controller

    • Management

In this episode we discuss an https://medium.com/midform/a-rope-with-slack-cannot-move-anything-353f34f31df2 (interesting article) about change and understanding that change will cause tension, and that's OK. In fact the author contends it's required and uses the analogy of rope requiring tension to perform its key task - pulling something/hanging something etc. We also discuss the importance of getting out of the way to allow change to happen, and recognizing that you will need a team of people with different skills to drive the change through your organization. Check out the https://www.kolbe.com/kolbe-a-index/ (Kolbe-A assessment) (similiar-ish to Myers-Briggs/StrengthsFinders etc) to help you identify the strengths of your team and who you should allow to step into their roles and facilitate this change process.
What did you think of the article? Have you and your team taken the Kolbe assessments? Were they helpful?
