Over time to tackle complex issues, simple people devise simple techniques to bring about solutions in a bid to command change and set things back in place.
The world today is still trying to get back on her feet following the effect of the global pandemic caused as a result of the outbreak of Coronavirus disease. But then, it seems so evident that everyone is geared towards driving innovation in their respective industry in a bid to sustain business operations and give back ‘life’ to the world and economy again.
Although change as we call it, just the way we deem fit is not a piece of an item sold in the marketplace, but a catalyst that often comes with beauty, discomfort, and maybe pains. But even with its accomplice, change still remains inevitable for any venture, process, or organization that wants to see progress. Things are changing today no doubt, it is no more news now that a lot of activities which seem practically impossible to get done at home, now works comfortably from home without any serious interruption and so this has set in motion for us all another unconscious act of change which came to be following the sudden order of the day or better still the new normal we found ourselves in.
While it is very possible for us to shout change from now till another four decades (in fact the shout was so much at a time in this country but its positive effect till now, is still missing) and some people still will find difficulty in accepting it, but the truth is still anchored on the fact that this said change is inevitable. A Chinese-American film Director Lee Mun Wah once speaking during a Tedtalk™ stressed this same reality about change. In this talk he supported the idea that change shouldn’t be too disgusting a drink not to be taken. He actually said;
We just have to walk through our fears to see another world.
This then translates to a reality today which allows for us to let go of the status-quo and build a formidable world where changes are quickly adapted to.
While the subject of positioning cannot be overemphasized in the change process, it is often seen as a pioneering force that helps individual persons or organizations to embrace the proceeds of change.
Positioning for change
- Be on the lookout for opportunities
Opportunities often wouldn’t come in a dinner gown or nice tuxedo but most times in a fully kitted overall. You need to, therefore, recognize one when it appears, appreciate it, and go for it.
This is one time to read and research out stuff on the internet and in books. A lot of great stuff will remain hidden in our business environment and life if we fail to check out the dusty pages laid up on our shelves for ideas.
3. Adapt to the improved way of doing things
Individuals who still think the technological improvement we have or are seeing today has no profiting whatsoever in it has just begun pranking himself without knowing. Just as said in our previous post, work will never remain as usual, but innovative people with great minds to changes will remain in business and take the lead in whatever capacity they find themselves.
4. Avoid rigidity
Get used to the new way of doing things. You can even improve on it but staying rigid is a disadvantageous thing to do.
5. Keep Innovating
Positioning for change is more like staying in a noticeable angle to be served or better still tuning a radio to the right frequency in a bid to receive signal. Positioning is really all that matters in a time as this. All hands need to be on deck to accept the new normal.
