Are you and your organization being held back?
Are your co-workers saying, “Don’t rock the boat. Don’t bring your new ideas here they are not welcome!”
To often it is the co-workers that don’t want to change, learn or thinking forward! And it is often contagious! And it is allowed to continue.
A Business Health Warning!
Who do these “unchange agents represent”? Are they representing the organization or themselves? Statistics show that they are a pretty big minority but their influence kills organizations and they “outperform” those who are truly engaged.
The negative few overcome and outperform the positive majority!
If you don’t do anything about it your organization is not going to last very long! The “good” will leave and the “bad” will prevail.
Unfortunately there are too many folks who are stuck in “yesterday” and too many organizations that are not prepared to move the “jelly”. Too much “wobble” and not enough moving off the plate (bus).
Creativity to do something different, to move the organization forward, takes courage. It takes very little to say it has always been like that here and (this new stuff) will not work!
I often see the entitlement that people feel they have of having worked somewhere for a long time. I too often see lack of leadership or management.
The organization allows them the privilege to put down those folks with new ideas AND get away with it.
That’s when privilege becomes an entitlement and the entitlement starts to kill the very hand that feeds them.
Remaining spectacular with ideas brings value to you and the organization.
There are too many Naysayers in every organization who want to tell you what you cannot do.
It is time for every organization to look at those who they employ and who actively work against what the company needs to do to be competitive. Move them out! You will save millions of dollars and save your company.

Don’t get me wrong I am all for change! Perhaps too much so on occasion!
BUT let’s be clever about it.
Some folks spend much of their time wanting the organization to fit their desires and needs. That simply will not work!
That’s not change that’s simply looking through the wrong lens.
There have been very few organizations that decide their very essence; their culture needs an overhaul.
So for those of you who spend your time fighting the “system”. I say to you. You screwed up!!! Get out because you add no value!
It was at the interview. That is when you should have figured out whether you want to work there, don’t use your energy and more important those around you to figure out that everybody else is wrong!
Understand the difference between stretching the organizational box, which is a good thing, and wanting to play outside the box and stay there. That simply means, “get out when you can, or you will get fired!” And it will be the right thing for everybody.
YOU DON”T FIT!
Business needs people who know the difference between change that creates a better environment for the success of everyone in the business and change for personal reasons.
