Organizations are human systems operating in an environment of complex relationships and constant change. Leaders benefit from an understanding of human systems as communities, where seemingly opposite realities can coexist, such as the need for stability and change.
One key objective for any organization is to produce, which involves learning. Successful organizations continually apply their learning toward an external purpose. Some companies do this well and none are experts. The goal is to learn everything possible and continually change, but to change within the framework of strategic intent. Learning involves internal change, as well. People and systems constantly evolve. Identity changes, as does purpose. Recognizing and adapting to internal change requires time for reflection and acceptance.
With the right balance of leadership, strategy, people, process, and technology; with respect for human dignity; and with reverence for learning; any organization can unleash its human potential. At Mindshift we focus on the fundamentals that shape an organization's capacity to learn, develop and produce. We design structure and develop people in support of strategic intent.
