Keeping Your Cultural Changes Alive and Well: Did your FISH Stick to the Can Do Attitude?

Prepared by Jim Messina, Ph.D.


What is your vision for cultural change in your organization

What is your Vision for Cultural Change in your Organization?

Does Having A Can DO Attitude mean for you:

  • Choose your attitude

  • Be there

  • Make their day

  • Play

  • Provide Legendary Service

  • Develop Raving Fans


Keeping your efforts alive

Keeping your efforts alive!

  • The challenge in changing your organizational culture to increase your productivity and profitability is to move from External Energy to Internal Energy

  • Reality is that novelty brings excitement but once a “new” way of working is underway-gravity pull of the “old” way begins and you can fall off


External vs internal energy to sustain change

External vs. Internal Energy to Sustain Change!

  • Initially “novelty” is an adequate source of energy but it is external

  • But over time a deeper more sustainable source of energy must be found which must be internal to the people and the organization!

  • What does it take to sustain your vision for your organization’s cultural change?


Vision moments

Vision Moments

  • A vision comes alive by identifying and bringing to life possibilities that are always present but never acted upon until now!

  • These become “vision moments” once they take action

  • Your own vision must be

    • Focused

    • Specific

    • Personal

  • You find your own vision through conversations by identifying the philosophy and your place within the vision


Have conversation about the vision with your staff

Have conversation about the Vision with your staff!

  • What are we creating here with our precious life energy?

  • To what are we committed?

  • What is our personal role inside the vision?

  • What is at stake for us?

  • What does success look like?

  • How will we support each other in keeping from backsliding

  • Ask deep questions about work that get people to pause and think about what they do and the way they do it!


You must have real and fierce conversations

You must havereal andfierce conversations

  • Real: they must be authentic and not just pretense or posturing

  • Fierce: the amount of time you spend at work makes these conversations vital to a satisfying life for you and your staff and coworkers


Commit to it

COMMIT to IT

  • You must FIND IT! By personalizing the Vision!

  • You must personalize the vision for the renewed culture in your organization or it just remains external to you and it is not internalized

  • By personalizing the vision as your own, you have given the vision sustaining energy which will ground you as you have conversations with your workers about the vision

  • You must commit to the vision as if it is your own vision


What is finding it

What is FINDING IT?

  • Finding it is having conversations with your team as to what it takes to personally commit to the vision and how to personalize it for themselves

  • It requires weekly face to face meetings in which these vision conversations are conducted

  • These conversations help you and your team discover and rediscover the unique vision which your organization is pursuing for itself


Be it

BE IT!

  • LIVE IT! Grab Opportunities to BE IT!

  • Once you are clear about the vision for your organizational culture, opportunities to live it will become more obvious

  • These opportunities to live the vision are called: vision moments

  • Vision-sustaining energy builds as you live as many vision moments as you can!

  • You must LIVE THE VISION in your life in the organization and don’t wait for others to make it happen! BE THE VISION FOR OTHERS!


What is be it

What is BE IT?

  • Living it is spontaneous creativity fueled by a strong commitment to the vision

  • In committing to something big, you see opportunities you might have otherwise missed

  • You become open to opportunities to live the vision whenever and wherever you can and recreate it every day by the way you live at work

  • It is you “being” the vision when you do the work of your organization which makes the vision live!


Coach it

COACH IT!

  • Coaching is feedback you give to each other on your team

  • By “calling each other” on when you or your coworkers are not being true to your vision, keeps your vision alive!

  • You coach to keep the vision alive and not to go on some “power trip” which is ego satisfying

  • You coach about

    • How you do your work

    • The way the team works together

    • What is in the best interest of the customers and team


What is coaching

What is Coaching?

  • Evidence that you have taken your responsibility seriously-because it is hard to coach

  • It is done by those who are deeply committed to making your organization great-not just good!

  • You demonstrate your commitment to the vision by coaching

  • You also demonstrate your commitment to the vision by allowing others to coach you

  • It is the glue that holds your team together

  • It is the fuel for little corrections that keeps the light of the vision burning bright

  • It can be the stimulus for little innovations that reinvent you and your organization


You must become the pathfinder for your vision

You must become the PATHFINDER for your Vision

  • Your organization’s vision is unique to your organization so you cannot borrow steps that other organizations have taken to make them work for you

  • You must “STEP OUT” and find your own path to make your vision become real!

  • You must chose methodology that you and your team feel comfortable with as being uniquely your own

  • It takes courage to take the risk to create your own vision path

  • It takes courage to go down a path filled with uncertainty and unknowns


Challenge each other to acquire the can do attitude

Challenge each other to Acquire the Can Do Attitude

  • Challenge your organizational staff members to begin to have regular conversations on such topics as:

  • When in your workday do you know you are living the vision?

  • What is the experience we are trying to create for one another and our customers?

  • How do you personalize this vision?

  • How can we support each other in keeping our new vision and way of working alive and well?


Taking action is living the commitment to your vision

Taking Action is Living the Commitment to Your Vision

  • To keep the vision alive each member of the team must commit to living the vision every day on the job

  • Each member must be it by personalizing the vision as his or her own vision when at work

  • Members much coach one another in the vision and how to live the vision

  • You must COMMIT-BE IT-COACH IT
