ONE CHANGE AT A TIME


Have you ever experienced coming to a position of power suddenly?

It is generally on getting a promotion or new assignment or contract.

You have a team waiting for your instructions and you also have bigger responsibilities to share.

The temptation in such a situation is normally that you want to change everything.

Yes, you have a right to do so. You should change everything to suit your taste, your style and your ‘plan of action’.

Take a pause.

If you make drastic changes or too many changes at one time, the system may not cope up with your way of work in spite of your noble intentions or excellent solutions to problems.

The better approach would be to do one small change at a time, wait the system to stabilize to adopt the change as routine and then move on. If possible bigger changes should be broken into a series of small changes

It makes sense if you consider the viewpoint of other party (who is getting affected by the changes made by you). It is a normal reaction that any change raises the level of discomfort and viewed with suspension. Till the benefits are clearly visible to all, the changes are not accepted globally.

So go all out for changes, but step by step.

  1. Take a pause.

    This is like "take it easy" policy, No?

  2. Dear Rajey,

    What I meant is 'Doing it deliberately and consciously'.
    As regard 'Take it easy policy' I feel we should accept the rality even if it is bitter and live the life easily.
