Today and the story continues. Its taken me this long (since my last blog) to get back to this blog and update what's been going on.
The Covid-19 pandemic is still at large and people thinking like its ended - beaches full, shops filling and public parks filling even more. Not sure of what to make of it but its a reality.
The identification of change within our human DNA is very wishy washy. And what I mean by that is that it is up and down for us all and can be a simple and straight forward process for some and for others it can be all over the place.
We are taught, well I was, that change comes in a simple and straight forward process and the model used was the Elisabeth Kubbler-Ross 5 stage model. That was a very long time ago and there have been lots of updates on this since - just google it and see what comes up (over 3 billion options!!! - not saying they're all relevant 😳😷).
But change is an oddity even when you considerer that we live in the modern world and the fact that Apple Pay means you can buy a house with your Apple Watch (assuming you've enough money in your account or even better a monster overdraft!!!). Can you imagine being told this 20 years ago that you can pay for things with your watch?
So we go through stages and rationals in a staged process - some will hurtle through and some will go slow. We want this be done and closed off quickly as there are so many things to consider and understand - the irony is that change is a constant and yet we allow it certain aspects of our lives but not in others.
Ive brought in Lewin's change concept of 'Unfreeze', 'Changing' and then 'Freezing'. 3 simple steps that was devised in 1947 and still used today in organisational change.
The reflection on what happened and how it happened is the key - what do we do with the knowledge we have gained and act on it.
There's number 2 finished! - quite enjoyed that
Tomorrow will be a TED talk binge day. Catch up soon
