Organizations and companies have the best intentions and good strategies for change. These often focuses on business processes, technology infrastructures, people trainings and programs and the likes – the things that can be controlled and measured. The goal is “a new system capable of increased internal efficiency, expanded agility and capability in the marketplace, with new levels of energy, creativity, ownership, and productivity.”
However, what organizations lack is the focus on the inner spaces and realities of people, these being their cognitive, psychological, and spiritual development. When this is ignored, culture which is the vehicle for change to take place, stays the same. Therefore, for sustainable transformation to happen within organizations, it “demands for deep internal
change upon every person in the organization…that each person fundamentally changes their system of identity, not merely make a few skill adjustments…into a radically new way of understanding and expressing themselves and their world.”
Maybe it is time to refocus on the seemingly latent but obvious resource we have – our people.
