Being a better organisation means reshaping how you operate. With the aim of minimising harm to people, communities and the planet.
This isn’t a one-person gig. True change requires everyone’s buy-in. That’s just how big changes roll.
Kick things off with a team meet-up. Maybe throw in some pizzas for good measure. Do it face-to-face if you can.
Discuss your ‘why’. Why are you stirring the pot? What’s the bigger picture? Then really listen to your team. Some might be sceptics and that’s okay. Hear them out. You’re not just looking for nods; you’re looking for real talk, suggestions, concerns and ideas.
After all, this is about making your team’s life better too. That’s the juicy fruit hanging within reach. Once you set the stage for change, you can start getting opinions on more concrete topics. Topics team members have unique insights into, from process improvements to company culture.
Change doesn’t happen overnight, so don’t stop when you start seeing results. Keep asking questions, keep listening and keep moving forward.
