Bringing sustainable change is part of our lives and occurs because we decide to do things differently. To become a winning sports team, the consistent and persistent application of proven principles is pragmatically and incrementally used with adoption and adaption to circumstance. The sports team undertakes campaigns or programs to address emergent behaviors while delivering specific outcomes through its people. The team trains differently, skills up, varies the plays and nurtures the players, brings new leadership, and takes time to resolve issues. The wining team comes from the emergent behavior of empowered emotional individuals who have ownership. They have pride in who they are, what they do, and who are prepared to do things differently, because their interests and values are aligned. The leadership works best when they are the change they wished to see and treat others as they themselves would be treated.

Change is about people and getting us to do things in another way, like eating differently for better health. We understand the issue, the impacts, what we should do, and where to get help and support. The actions then come from empowered individuals with ownership, pride in who they are and what they do, who are responding emotionally, because interests and values are aligned. With help and support provided, an emergent behavior is formed, and change occurs: “I do good work, change is coming, help me with the change, and I can do more.”

We live with change. A sports team becomes a winning team through the consistent and persistent application of proven principles applied pragmatically. The sports team trains differently, skills up, varies the plays and nurtures the players, brings new leadership, and takes time to resolve, rather than the magic wand or panacea or the one size fits all approach. The wining team comes from the emergent behavior of empowered emotional individuals who have ownership. They have pride in who they are and what they do and do things differently because the interests and values are aligned. The leadership works best when they were the change they wished to see and treated others as they themselves would be treated. The environment was changed, behaviors were instilled, and outcomes are achieved.

Change is part of our lives and is about getting people to do things differently. Change the environment, instill the behaviors, to achieve the outcomes. It is the actions of empowered emotional individuals with ownership and pride in who they are and what they do that brings change. Change comes from the alignment of interests and values and having leadership that is the change they wish to see and treat others as they themselves would be treated. Change is about working with what you have, crafting and shaping the emergent behaviors, to get the best from people. Change takes time and comes from the consistent and persistent application of proven principles implemented pragmatically.

Uncertainty, risk, nuance, and shades of gray are part of the ambiguity of our lived experience and are present within change. Whether we recognize and elect to manage ambiguity and respond or not, the impacts are there. Success in managing change and business transformation comes through the proactive management of ambiguity and when the ambiguity management skill is used across the implementation. Having ambiguity management developed for use in ongoing operations and services is also of benefit.
