Change Can Grow JoyOct 02, 2020
Written by Roxanne Brown
Change can grow joy. An executive we spoke with recently referred to change as the destroyer of joy. It’s such a fascinating statement when you consider some of the phrases we use in business:
- Disruptive innovation
- Failing fast
- Digital transformation
These are catchy phrases but also inspire inertia, disbelief, fear and a lot of cognitive dissonance when the words and actions of the company, leaders and managers don’t match, when that’s not acknowledged.
Another executive we spoke with said they don’t use the word “change” in their company, they say “evolution” because change is too scary.
Clearly there’s fear attached to change, but there’s another way. A company can change and grow joy. It’s all about how!
