Which Road Will You Take?

The first week of July features both our national holiday, Canada Day, and Independence Day for our neighbours to the south. For many people, it’s a road trip week – headed to visit family, go camping, or just see another part of one’s town or country. We’ve observed two kinds of travelers during the many road trips we have taken: those who seek out the familiar, and those who prefer a little novelty. The familiars eat at McDonald’s or some other well-known chain, sleep at Ramadas or Holiday Inns, and stick to the highway. The adventurers prefer the back roads, local inns, and take chances on tiny eateries.

Making change in your organization is much the same – you can implement it in a way that feels comfortable, easing slowly into new methods or behaviours. Or, you can have revolution instead of evolution, opting to head boldly toward the unknown.

Either way can work, but by-and-large they are mutually exclusive. So as you forge ahead, decide which works best and strike out in that direction. Which road will you take to make change in how you work?

Going boldly,

Megann and Steve
