Stop relying on projects to make your people more adaptable

Have you ever wondered why most people who’ve been through lots of projects aren’t more open to the idea of change?

The world is becoming increasingly complex and uncertain. Raising our ‘Change Intelligence’ is essential for survival and growth. But that isn’t going to happen just by doing more projects. Because projects are designed to change what people do, now how they think and feel about change itself.

To develop our relationship with change, we must overcome our primal self-preservation instinct to resist. And even our super-computer neo-cortex struggles to learn how to see change differently. In other words, it’s no 5 minute job, and it’s time that no project can afford.

But there is an alternative approach:

You can raise your Change Intelligence by learning the art and science of how to deal with your fears, anxieties, and self-doubt. And from there you can raise it further still by understanding the personal benefits of embracing change.

A higher Change Intelligence is the most effective way for an organisation to develop its culture and deliver its strategy. Because if people can manage how they think and feel about change, they can change anything.

So what’s the takeaway?

The chances are that your external environment is moving faster than your internal environment. So, raise your Change Intelligence, because most of what you know and how you operate has a shelf-life.
