A “Learning/Discovery” Approach to Change

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Today’s organizations face change in a variety of areas…at an unprecedented rate. And though we’ve been told that constant change is the “new normal”,  we usually look upon it with fear and negativity.

Susan Campbell, author of From Chaos to Confidence, has an interesting take on the topic.  Campbell views navigating change as being a lot like surfing:  “Successful surfers stay just ahead of the wave that could wipe them out at any moment.  They use the power of this very same wave, participating with the wave, not fighting it or trying to control it.”

In the same way, to survive in a constantly changing workplace, Campbell says we must learn to relate to our environment rather than trying to control it.

One way to do this is to shift our mindset from “Security/Control” to “Learning/ Discovery”.

If we maintain a Security/Control mindset we focus on stability ( i.e. knowing the rules, being around people like us and having things turn out predictably).  We don’t like uncertainty, change, lack of structure or people who don’t share our point of view.  We view change as a loss of control.

Alternatively, when we develop a Learning/Discovery mindset, we become open to experimenting in unfamiliar situations.  Because we relate to our environment rather that trying to control it, we focus on creatively developing ourselves to succeed in our changing environment.Instead of worrying about what we’ve lost, we ask, “What does this moment require of me?” This attitude shift is very empowering, making change an opportunity for growth.

According to Campbell, when we get trapped in a world of wishes and fears, we lose the power to deal effectively with reality and the options it holds.   The key to getting “unstuck” lies in letting go of attitudes and reactions that don’t work and focusing on ones that do, like those listed below: (more…)

The Pygmalion EffectMuch has been written about the Pygmalion Effect, but what is it? More importantly, how can it affect you and your organization?

The Pygmalion Effect, sometimes referred to as a “self-fulfilling prophecy”, occurs when the expectations we have for another (be they positive or negative) influence that person’s performance. The phenomenon has been studied and documented numerous times both in business and education.

The illuminating video The Pygmalion Effect  uses a variety of vignettes and real-world case studies to show how teachers and managers unwittingly transmit expectations to employees and students. Time and time again, viewers see that high expectations lead to improved performance while low expectations lead to diminished performance. (more…)

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

8.jpgAs anyone who’s done the job knows, supervising people is hard work.  When you take on this role, a whole new set of challenges arise, especially when you are promoted to lead former colleagues and friends. Remember all the times you went to lunch with your former team to vent about your boss? Now you are the boss and dynamics have radically changed. It’s no wonder why being promoted to supervisor makes many people uncomfortable.
