Think about this: Many of the challenges your organization faces were actually put into place to be the solutions to previous challenges.

Too often we overreact, pushing the pendulum too far in the other direction.

The examples are all around us.

💢 Feeling siloed? It’s probably because at some point the team was bogged down with too many large meetings, so they split off into teams to be more focused.

😫 Feel like the approval process is an unnecessary bottleneck? It’s probably because your organization got burned in the past when things went out before they were ready.

So how do you solve it? The better method is this: Remember that you’re not looking for the other extreme when you’re setting out to solve a problem. You’re looking for balance.

Be in the habit of asking: “How can we be sure we’re not overcompensating?”

This way, you move more cautiously in the right direction without putting in place something that will be seen as a big problem in 12 months. 🎯
