Nimble organisations can deliver high levels of performance continually, quickly and effectively while responding to the demands of change.
They have tested negatively for blaming-COVID-for-everything, regularly question their pre-conditioned ways of work, and think and act differently from organisations who have adopted a this-is-the-way-we-have-always-done-it approach.
Here’s how they do it:
- Celebrate small wins
- Change their mindset to respond to change quickly
- On average don’t have a meeting for longer than 1 hour
- Measure what is relevant
- Assign goals, not roles
- Make mistakes and get over them quickly
- Employ skilled individuals
- Adopt a learning culture
- Think proactively
- Communicate well
Continually questioning your pre-conditioned ways of work means you have the ability to change the thinking patterns of your culture. And in essence these organisations adopt a neuroscientific approach: re-wiring the brain of their organisation. That’s how they remain successful.
