Often resistance to change is just the lack of clarity.
Everyone sees the end of a process at different lengths (time-spans) this is why developing small steps or small-wins quickly can help to gain momentum.
On to the Inquiry:
I’ve used these four question on everything from developing with a team of engineers a new way to create a bolt in a quicker time, wasting less materials…to a team of C-level executives who wanted to develop a new organizational culture as they were growing rapidly and hiring new staff…to working with a middle school group on finding ways to reduce bullying in their classes.
The question are as deep as needed by the person asking and answering:
- What is it you are trying to achieve?
- On a scale of 0 – 10 with 10 being it is achieved and 0 being the opposite; where are you?
- What worked / was effective to get you to where you are?
- What does +1 on the same scale look like?
Try the four questions above and see what happens.
