Space for the development of ‘co-workers’ is the key to organizational development

How to encourage your employees to change and proactive to work?

It is at this time a art of new find answers to existing problems and challenges – proactive and creative instead of reactive troubleshooting, and (new) to avoid problems. The answers are increasingly in the organization and its own employees rather than outside ‘experts’. However, it is the art that answers to un-wrap and un-cover.

Creative and sustainable organizational change

Also the time that changes are only top-down were sent is over. The more all hierarchical layers of the organization are linked to each other (vertical and horizontal), the greater the likelihood of creative and sustainable organizational change. Change is rather a doctrine or leiderschapstraject than a source of resistance.

Reflection (collaborative learning) retrieves the creativity of employees and teams to the top. So they will be less likely to resist and create a place where diversity and collaboration take place. Under these conditions, can organisational change occur.

Five questions for the floor, brightening and renewal

The following five questions are crucial to work together or independently to answer. The more conscious this process as an organization and as a human being) is concerned, how pro-active (and more effective) your (organization) is.

  1. who are you (identity)?
  2. what would you like to contribute to the environment (mission)?
  3. what do you think is important and what you stand for (values)?
  4. what will and can you contribute (skills)?
  5. what do you need to achieve this (cross-compliance)?

By answering these questions, unfolds an organisation, team or individual mission, vision, direction and strategy. The desired innovation can be achieved. It's all about the dis-cover and un-folding of what is hidden in the employees of the organization.
