IS REAL CHANGE POSSIBLE?
“Times of growth are beset with difficulties.But these difficulties arise from the profusion of all that is struggling to attain form.Everything is in motion: Therefore,if one perseveres,there is a prospect of great success.”– I Ching
Increasingly,the issues that affect business are global in scope.Organizations are nested in a storm tossed sea of global change where everything affects everything else.Issues of cross-cultural commerce,global economic shifts,resource constraints,ecological impact,and geo-political (in) stability are redefining the context of leadership.Our old ways of thinking and leading are not capable of encompassing the level of interdependence and complexity we face.They simply are not up to the challenges of global change.In fact,they are barely up to the challenges of organizational change.A recent study of more than 100 companies engaged in major change efforts demonstrated that 85% don’t yield tangible much less durable results.Why?Meg Wheatley,renowned author of Leadership and the New Science, suggests that:“Most of the ways we were taught to think,to reason,to understand simply don’t give us the means to make wise decisions anymore.We don’t know how to be wise stewards of the dilemmas and challenges that confront us daily.We were not taught how to make sense of a chaotic world,or a world-wide interconnected web of activity and relationships.”
