Change management hack #15-2017

Getting actual results out of a transformation is where the rubber hits the road, but there are a few pitfalls to conquer. Decisions agreed to do not guarantee results. Neither does an action list. And neither does a booya experience at the end of four exhausting off-site days interspersed with physical activities that are challenging.

What gets actual results?

A cadence – same group, same time, same place (can be virtual) – one half hour on:

  • What did we complete the last two weeks?
  • What are we doing the next two weeks?
  • Who needs help?

Until it’s done.

Cadence: speaking to one another, face to face or video to video, or even voice to voice. Change happens in the dialogues we share on a regular basis. Nowhere else.
