Want Your ...

How many years before have you sat here on this very day …. yes, a few days before the first of the year thinking about how next year was going to be better!

You think about all of the things you want to do differently and yet deep down inside you have doubts and uncertainties.

Many of us have a great desire to change and yet we don’t have a system in place to keep us consistent and focused.

Even more true is that many of us say we need to change and yet when it comes time to making a commitment and being held accountable we simply back off.

We believe that we can do it all on our own even though we never have been completely or even partially successful in the past.

What if you could insure that next year was really your best year ever?

3 Questions To Ask Yourself:

  1. Do you want to be more productive than you ever have been in a single year?
  2. Are you willing to commit to a process that will change your life? Really?

What if you only had 7 minutes … left on earth?

Okay so it sounds like an absurd question? And yet I was asked to answer it … today!

I was filling out a survey in order to do some work with a woman I consider to be a master speaker and coach (all of us need coaches).

As part of the process,  I had to fill out a survey of filled with some very poignant questions. One of those questions was this: As a speaker, if you only had 7 minutes to speak to people before you left the planet … what would you say?

Excuse me … pardon me … 7 minutes…. are you kidding me!!!! I need more time! Can I have 7 hours, okay how about 7 months, even better 7 years … and that’s my final answer!!!

Let’s be honest, most of us don’t think about how much time we have left here and yet the truth is this: next year at this exact time … some of us won’t be here!

So if you only had 7 minutes to talk to people before you died, what would you say? Would you tell everyone what you think is most important in life, would you tell them what to do or to remember? Or would you tell how they should live their lives?

So here’s what I would say:

  1. Everything in your life is perfect and unfolding exactly as it supposed to be. There are no coincidences. Trust the process!
  2. One of the most important decisions you will make is whether you believe you live in a friendly or hostile universe – Einstein
  3. Your sense of self worth and value is directly proportionate to your level of success in life.
  4. You are an amazing incredible extraordinary being created for an amazing purpose. You just have to uncover it and it’s imprinted on your soul. It’s there … look deeply because sometimes it gets covered with lies and old beliefs that don’t serve you or anybody else anymore. The key to discovering the truth about you lies in your ability to push through your fear and truly love yourself and others. Do that my friends and you will get as close as you can get … to heaven on earth!

So that’s what I would tell everyone and I didn’t need 7 minutes!

So what about you … what would you say?

If you really think about it … if it’s that important that you would be willing to spend the last 7 minutes of your life telling everyone on earth…

Maybe you should tell them … today?

Ch … Ch … Ch … Change? (Gulp)

As a consultant I have come to the realization over the years that not every company who says that they want change, really does.

The reasoning varies and here’s just a few of the reasons I have observed.

5 reasons I believe that organizations don’t change:

  1. Leaders are not willing to be honest with themselves.
  2. Some people are just not willing to do what it takes to commit and see the change all the way through.
  3. People don’t like to be uncomfortable.
  4. People fear the unknown (change).
  5. Some folks prefer the status quo … even though it’s not working!

Change can be hard for many reasons here are a few:

  1. It requires leaders and their employees to let go of old beliefs and find new ways of thinking and doing.
  2. It requires the willingness to sacrifice short term comfort in order to get a payoff that is not always immediate.
  3. It requires the leaders of a company to really examine the fears that have prevented them from moving forward and to take 100% responsibility for the results they are creating in their organization.
  4. It takes time, sometimes more time than people are willing to invest.

Here are 10 ideas that need to be embraced if you want an organizational transformation to be successful:

  1. ALL of the leaders (especially at the top) must be bought in to the change or your process will be slowed dramatically and more than likely fail.
  2. Have a clearly defined vision, mission, and values (beliefs) of the change you wish to see.
  3. Communicate that change throughout the organization down to the very last employee consistently and in a variety of venues.
  4. Involve key leaders and positions in various levels of the organization to increase the buy in and begin weaving the change into the culture of the organization.
  5. Remove the obstacles and barriers that prevent change from flowing up through the organization. Communication needs to flow bidirectionally between the different levels of the company.
  6. Realize that not every person is the right person in the right position and that not everyone of your employees has unlimited potential (including some of the leaders).
  7. Be willing to go “all in” in order to get where you want to go, there really are no short cuts.
  8. Let go of the people who are not willing to change.
  9. Define measurable attainable milestones to make sure you’re on track and moving forward.
  10. Remind yourself of the “why”  (the reason ) you are changing. This will help especially when you bump up against obstacles … and there are always obstacles!
So how are you transforming the culture of your organization? Are you seeing the results you need to take the company to the next level? Need help?
Call and let’s have a conversation about what’s happening in your organization and how you can transform your culture starting today!!!
