Making the hard decision in the name of Innovation

 

Does your business or the company that you work for have a conservative attitude when it comes to risk?  Determined to maintain their current course of action even where it may result in them not achieving their potential.

This fixed mindset is an attempt to simply reaffirm their existing beliefs in terms of ‘how things are’, ‘how things should be’, ‘who we are’ and ‘what we are capable of’ even when the evidence clearly contradicts this perspective.  These organisational attitudes and beliefs are often taken on by new employees as the norm and left unchallenged and unquestioned to the detriment of the company.

What many fail to recognise is that the more open we are to uncertainty, the faster the rate at which we will learn.

In todays complex business environment there is rapid change and constant adaptation required. For those that are business owners and for those in management or leadership positions this means one thing.

You must not make complacency more attractive than innovation.

What many fail to realise is that by choosing not to ‘make any new decision’ you are in fact ‘taking a decision to stay the same’.

If this is you, then ask yourself how will you feel about this decision (even if the decision is to stay the same) in one year, five years and ten years time?  This simple question can assist you in thinking with a little more objectivity and clarity so try it out for yourself.
