Read the summary
People who talk about change are rarely short of conversation material. But not every conversation about change leads to change.
We waste a lot of valuable time if we get stuck in abstractions, models, bullets and definitions. Then we lose ourselves in contemplation. Only the intellect is speaking, the feeling is on mute.
Sometimes two statements are both truisms, but these truisms may clash. As with these two:
“We need to be agile”
“We need evidence-based change”
Because when we think of agility, we think of fast change and when we think of evidence-based change, we think of thinking before we start.
Where can they meet after all?
Nothing feels better than helping.
But sometimes it is better not to help. After all, your help could also make things worse. Then you help out, only to sigh afterwards:
“I just wanted to help.”
