Approach to the budget season will set the tone for 2021
ARE YOU GOING to avoid it, survive it, or help lead it?
A loss-mindset uses fear and control to avoid losing love, connection, and security. A reinvention-mindset uses courage and discipline to uncover blind spots and opportunities to transform yourself, your team, and your organization.
Change is hard. Culture Change is also transformative. And while the speed of change and disruption is the slowest it will be for the rest of our lives – a window has opened wide for positive transformation.
Your “red to black” – survive to thrive plan – is important. But if it doesn’t answer the question “what is our reimagined self, and how must we transform?” it will lead you right back to where you started.
Now is the time for wisdom; the marriage of experience and experimentation; facts and creativity; evidence and intuition.
Now is the time to recognize patterns faster, deepen collaboration, and accelerate learning. Now is the time for CEO’s, Team Leaders, Human Resource Managers, teachers, and parents to stage the conditions for personal, team, and organizational transformation so we don’t just survive change, we help lead it.
We need a new formula for success. We need the right mindset, inspired by wisdom, focused on the mission, energized by discipline, in order to lead change toward transformation.
Don’t let the budget season come and go without reimagining your mission.
“Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security.”
