This picture is a descriptive for SixSigma - a popular toolkit for workplace transformation. The problem with SixSigma is that it tends to analyse things like costs and disposables, pointing at down-time, profit and productivity but not even glancing at the personal picture an employee will see from their standpoint.
You can take on a system to make changes, but you can't make anyone change a system.
Managers who work with shop-floor teams in knowing that they're thinking people too are able to pool human resource with the best results.
In you resides an amazing power - consider its full potential.
Let's say, tentatively, that such an approach isn't working.
The energy within you connects, and makes things happen.
Many people would say that their circumstances put them where they are, and for sure, situations cause effects. But we have more say in the long run than we realise, for if we bring minds together on a shared objective, the burden of transformation becomes an exhilarating journey into the unknown with companions to share the adventure, and everything - the workplace you walk into, the gathering in the pub, even the family home you've struggled to juggle with, changes. It may take a little time on the personal front, but a few weeks in cosmic relativity are faster than the planet could change a lightbulb, so if you're reading this, and wondering where it could take you, welcome to the crest of the wave. Oh - and if you'd like better results from your meetings, bring me in to sit on one and you'll never waste time over that table again.
