We have many documents and videos that elaborate on this principle and process. This is actually the process AirTight Management uses for all its engagements to install each of its Six Systems. Only with the proper balance of consulting, training and coaching can a big change take hold and succeed. Without this mix laziness, habits and years of reflexes will pull the organization back to the older, inferior, ways in time.
This is also the cycle and process every company should use each time it encounters a major problem that goes across departmental lines to create any permanent change. In working with over 200 companies since 2002 we have found that generally training alone fails. Consulting alone fails. And even coaching fails to change a culture, or company, in significant ways. Coaching alone can be successful at changing an individual’s behavior and performance. However, Organizational Change and Development requires discipline, creativity and analytical skills to take hold. Success also requires fresh eyes to look at problems that are often just symptoms of root causes that are three or four levels away. Maybe even started in another area of the business.
So ask yourself, and your team as we begin 2016:
“Are we dedicated to having discipline and working “on” the business, not just “in” the business this year?
The first step is having a plan. The next is a disciplined cycle of review and constant improvement driven by a good management team.
