If we are going to make improvements in our change efforts, we have to really know the tools we are using to create change, understand how they are supposed to work, honestly assess how well they are actually working, and then identify the adaptations we can make to improve the chances for change. Yep. That’s a lot of knowing, understanding, assessing, and improving. But that is just how change happens. The arc of change can be steep and long. It can take a lot of time to make change happen and sometimes it takes even longer to see the impact of the change. When we take on the challenge of changing an organization, community, or system we need to buckle in for the ride. We also need to adopt a mindset that says we will work hard to do our best and, through Persistent Improvement, do better than our best.
Each week, until we launch the full Getting Started with the Tenacious Change Approach streaming video course in September, we are featuring a brief video on one of the ten essential operating principles of the Tenacious Change Approach. This video is an introduction to the ninth lesson in the series.
For even more, watch the full 20-minute overview “sneak preview” video HERE.
