It seems clear that a large number of organisations are avoiding tackling their governance issues because they believe that the ensuing changes would be too difficult to implement.
So here is a way out of that dilemma.
In their book ‘Our Iceberg is Melting’, John Kotter and Holger Rathgeber use classic storytelling – in fact it’s a fable - to demonstrate how managing change can be very successful if simplified and tackled in the right way.
So, as we drift into the summer break when grabbing a few moments for a quiet read is possible, ask yourself what’s better for your organisation. The status quo or something better?
Grab a copy of the book, take a few moments to read it – it’s quite short – and you may begin to change your mind as you visualise the possibilities.
If you know it’s been a long time since your last governance review and you need to understand how to begin, then I’d love to help. Just give me a call and we will find your best way forward.
