The Internet, economic turmoil, competition, customer experience, working patterns, regulation, Brexit and disintermediation are just a few of the chaotic influences afflicting most organisations nowadays.
The changes that we see taking place almost daily are usually sudden, rapid and radical. Many of them present a threat to your success. But there are also fantastic opportunities that can benefit your organisation.
If you're lucky enough to have dodged all these issues so far, there can be little doubt many of them are looming up in the future.
Relying on the status quo is not an option as we have seen recently with numerous famous-name retailers who failed to adapt to the new realities of the 21st century.
How To Cope
In order to deal effectively with all these issues you need:
- an understanding of what's happening in the wider world
- a willingness to consider new possibilities
- some innovative ideas for going forward
- open eyes and an open mind.
While changing what you do or the way you do it may be risky, it can also bring success and huge rewards.
If you need some inspiration to understand the crazy ways of the 21st century, work out how to respond to the pressures and update your organisation, you need a "Challenger". I can be your "Challenger".
I'd challenge you by getting you to take a fresh look at what you do and how your organisation fits into the current environment. I'd ask you key questions about your organisation to help you identify threats, pressures and disruption from outside your organisation as well as things that aren't working quite as well as they could internally. I'd help you look at your situation in different ways, opening up the way for new opportunities to present themselves.
Start Off Simply
I'd encourage you to try some of my mini challenges.
They're fairly simple and can help your team start thinking about alternatives and options to tackle the inevitable changes that are happening now or coming in the future.
Once you've had a go at those you could try something a bit more relevant to your own individual organisation, teams and activites. I can devise custom challenges that focus on your own specific situation, helping you and your staff look at your organisation in different ways, raising awareness of alternative approaches to what you do, getting motivated again when you're stuck in a rut or finding better ways of achieving your goals.
