Before we can begin to master change, we need to look into what the current benefits of not changing are. If you are stuck in a rut of running your business a certain way you may be avoiding a bigger issue that you see as too difficult to overcome. Issues may include confrontation, lack of resources or fears around success or failure. This could be known as the elephant in the room.
The short term comforts of not changing can lay foundation to long term pains. When you have a team, changing the status quo can be fraught with uncertainty. Your organisational culture is key to how this can all roll.
Often thinking through the aspects and impacts of change can help us take a closer look at ourselves, if you are willing to take a hard look at the reality. If the benefit of not changing in your business is building a short term wall of comfort it might be time to take the bull by the horns and face change.
The most defining moments I have had in my business life were when I confronted the reality, acknowledged the impact of the current situation long term and took action. These are also the moments I reflect back on where I challenged my comfort zone and created new possibility.
