Looks like today the crazy lazy mind got to view the real power of leading change….so what is it and why is this mind so enlightened by the simple event that it watched this evening? Nothing, but simply because of the power and motivation it brought in…wonderful…
I have always felt that everybody is biased by the fact that any toolset they learn new, it is not so required to analyze the + and – of that tool, rather just master it and start using it….and also nobody had the real courage to experiment anything at the beginning stage…. So was the crazy lazy mind….
Couple of weeks back at my work even I just wanted to master a tool with the help of the experts. So did I take several lessons from the tool experts, however the tool was so complex that it was not easy to use it instantly without having a sandbox to practice for a while…. This is the kind of thinking that went in my mind and I waited waited waited to get myself a sandbox arranged… weeks passed and now at the real last moment there was no time left to wait any further…
It was very important that for the current month we had to master the tool and use it. Being so our project lead took a real lead, mastered the tool and taught the team simpler way to use it.
However the crazy lazy mind was not that satisfied for what it learnt from the leader as it considered those new practices just as a workaround.
But to our surprise the results were so amazing that within a day or so from a novice I felt like intermediate expert and start to gain the confidence that ok, now we could survive without the real tool expert as well J
And this evening when we sat together as a team and tried to derive the taxonomy of the tool….honestly the thought that went behind the crazy lazy mind was why did the real experts spend huge amount of time in bringing/putting a complex practice in place when my lead could bring such a beautiful change/understanding within a very short span of time….Everyone in the team felt it was a mind blowing exercise and change that our lead practiced with everybody today…
Just like me or most in general if my lead had feared to experiment his new thoughts and tried to master the complex process I think we would have run into trouble with our delivery…rather today those who were terrified by the tool in the previous sprint are very much comfortable and confident in using the terrific tool now….What an amazing change…..
May be this is called, THINKING THE CHANGE, LIVING THE CHANGE and BRINGING THE CHANGE….
Hats off and kudos to the real leader behind this leading change.
The crazy lazy mind is inspired to the highest this evening and excited feeling it’s power!!
Be the one to Lead the change and set an example to rest of the world!!
