Managing Change

Where personal and professional development is about engaging life

Issue, December 2015
You, the Id
Many times we may feel that no matter what we do the 'rub' just will not quit. Your associates at work do not give you any support. Your senior management seem to ignore your earnest attempts to deliver results. Juniors in the firm seem to treat you with distain and support staff are never around when you need them the most. Have you looked around and evaluated the times when you did 'hit the ball out of the park', on your own. When that seemingly impossible became a memory. It is at those moments (some longer than others) that as we decide to deal with our apprehensions that new personalities and capabilities are recognized. Bring on the indifference...I will find an alternative solution and adapt with the environment. I do not change, I adapt and engage my mind.
Family Dynamics
Among many nationalities the term family extends to include strangers who come and stay extended periods of time with a community. Ingratiating one's self in the customs, respecting traditions, there are customs still out there, all the while exchanging courtesies in building rapport. At work and in business a reminder every now and then can be seen when colleagues, associates, senior and entry level employees exchange professional protocol. 
Unfortunately there are some who come to these opportunities with insecurity and trepidation. Best place them in mental timeout and show them you 'will not go there'. Silence is your friend. Just as in professional speaking, the pause is King...or Queen! 
The entrepreneurial spirit is strong.
With the shifting focus of technology driven industry norms to behavioral data driving job and employment compatibility, read McKinsey's Quarterly 2016 Organizing for the Future, having an immigrant perspective on the future will serve you well. Immigrants, over the last 15 years, have increased the rate by which they start businesses by more than 50 percent, while the native-born have seen their business formation rate decline by 10 percent. Moreover, income from immigrant-owned businesses increased by more than 60 percent over the last decade, and in 2010 generated more than $775 billion in revenue, $125 billion in payroll, and $100 billion in income, and employed one out of every ten workers. Read the whole report from the link above. Our perspective are what is getting in the way - learn to adapt.

Life's Perspectives
There are CEO's that create the opportunity and then move on seeking new pastures. There are others who enjoy the building and maintaining needs of business enterprise. Many look forward to developing spin-offs from which great satisfaction of being a part of new endeavors is sort. Some CEO's like the technical aspect of managing operations, 'oiling' the cogs of production and gain pleasure in mentoring and coaching key personnel in their unique professional development. A legacy for sure.

So, when you think you are spent and your self efficacy has been exhausted what will you turn to? Bingo! Goal! another round at...what ever. Why don't you bring your skills to a community, any where in the world, and engage in a new opportunity from your couch!

Usually when people are sad, they don't do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.

My Thoughts!
Raise your level of awareness and learn all there is about your world...or live in misery with your own inability to act decisively on what it is that you want out of your life.

Leader of Change

Tawakkul Karman is the youngest woman and the first Arab woman to have  won a Nobel Peace Prize . Tawakkul has given a face to women's rights, children's rights and peaceful revolution in the Arab nation. Instead of allowing the government to destroy the economy and personal security, she stood up and presented a  solution. After successfully leading the charge against the dictatorship, she was asked to lead the country through the transitional period, but she refused in order to remain an unbiased advocate.
Lesson: Know when to go with the flow, but be prepared to change the tides. Develop strategic plans as a guide for business and personal development, but be willing to recognize the need to pivot when plans change.
