(The answer and reflection questions for you in this video)
Let's be honest, the only constant in this crazy world is change. But do we act like it? Mostly no. And so this never-ending change flood brings tons of uncertainty and piles of overwhelm. And it seems like it will never stop. Yikes.
But what if, instead of drowning in it or get swept away by constant change, we could get in an innertube and float like we are on vacation? What if we could ride the currents to exactly where we want to go, faster than we ever could before?
You can. That's Change Power.
Change happens in 2 directions. There's the change constantly flying at our faces that we have seem to have very little control over. Incoming! Then there's the change we purposely try to create, the change that we want to see in the world. Outgoing. Change Power is your total mastery of both these directions of change.
Try these questions:
On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your ability to remain calm, feeling good, and thrive in the flood of constant change?
On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your ability to consistently create the new inspiring things you want to see in the world?
If both answers are not a 10, take a second to imagine what your work and life could be like if you could make your Change Power a 10. What are all the agile, amazing, new things you would do with maximum Change Power?
Yes! Exactly! That sounds incredible. Let's do that.
Mastering incoming change is arguably the most in-demand leadership skill in the business world right now. This skill is called Resilience.
Will change ever stop feeling overwhelming? Will our to-do lists ever get a break? Not if you keep doing what you've always done in the face of change and challenge.
There are 7 resilience energies that successful people use to thrive through change. It's science. You can find out exactly how you use these energies by getting a map of your Personal Resilience pattern. You will see how this pattern helps you or hurts you. Most importantly, you will see the specific new things you can to do to amp up your Resilience energy to master incoming change in work and life. I will guide you through this process. I'm certified.
What will your pattern look like?
Look at that sexy chart. That's what your Team Resilience Profile could look like. It gives you a map of exactly how your team comes together to face change, challenge, and disruption. It shows you where your team is doing really well and where you are lagging.
You can use this to manage your team's change capacity with laser precision. You can decide exactly where you need to give more support or pull back to help your team thrive in change and challenge. Your team will be able to handle more change, get through change quicker, with more clarity, less overwhelm, and support each other on a whole new level. More Change Power means less resistance and more progress. How valuable would that be?
Innovation: I've examined this concept my entire career. Why is real, lasting, leap-forward innovation so rare in most organizations? Because most people, teams and organizations are only structured for the status quo. So they freeze in the face of the uncertainty required to create something new. Fortunately, you and I are not most people.
Make uncertainty your friend and it will give you the gift of innovation. You can embrace uncertainty by how you structure your team. And you can guide others through a 4-part process that aligns the entire team with the same energy and focus. That's Team Synergy.
With this tool, you get exact ratings for your team's current level of Synergy in 9 different components. You even get to see how you compare to other teams. This data shows you exactly where resistance is happening in your work and how to address it. You will free yourself of this resistance. With the new level of alignment you will make real creative progress, finally. This is like your team's innovation capability roadmap.
How well does your team synergize for innovation?
Your Organization's Change Power is connected to its Values. And I'm not talking about the words on the wall. I'm talking about the actual day-to-day lived values. Every decision leaders make, every action they take, what they reward, and what they punish shows everyone what the real values are. Maybe they match the wall, maybe they don't. Maybe they are good for managing change, maybe they aren't.
What are the values you are really living? You can use our Valuetypes Assessment Tool to find out.
With this tool, get a precise read on the values that you, your people, and even your customers see in your organization. Are they a match for how you need to grow? Does the leadership and the rest of the company have different values? Are you an organization built on stability only, or are you set up to embrace change? Answer these questions quickly. This removes the guesswork from creating your optimal culture. You can choose how to engage your people, create your market advantage, and get to the next level.
The Valuetypes Analysis is brought to you by a collaboration of Love and Profit and Brands With Values. Partnership and co-creation are key values we share.
