Ever been involved in a business where change is the norm and not always successful? Have you ever wondered what the driver for a change is? Have you ever been put under increasing pressure to hit a deadline or outcome, even after explaining its not possible in the time allocated? Or have you ever experienced friction in an environment where people have changed, management or team members? If you answer yes to any of these, you will have felt the frustration of things happening around you and you not being fully aware of why; you may also have felt a little demotivated when the reasons for change have not been made obvious or the new targets that you are striving for explained.
If you have experienced these things you will almost certainly been subjected to personality profiling, team building, lectures on communication and motivation all of which are aimed at improving performance in a team or individuals.
The thing that I have experienced the most in all of these approaches is that they are not well joined together, they don’t link very well and having done all this training, we seem no better off than we were before; teams often don’t improve performance because they just revert to their own type; that’s not unusual and should be expected, after all our personality types by the time we move into the work environment are well established. Is all this stuff bad? Of course, it isn’t, it’s all very useful, however it needs to be applied the right way. If that’s not the case performance doesn’t improve, more people change, greater pressure is applied performance drops further.
Rubicon-OPM® covers many of the same aspects as the individual components that you will have seen already; however it approaches from the perspective of joining all the elements together, explaining the reasons for the frustrations that we feel in these situations and gives you methods and tips to help move through these situations in a joined up way, enabling everyone involved in the change to see their part in the process and more importantly be able to communicate effectively with the others in their team or cross-team where its necessary to do so. This approach enables those involved to have vision, to remove the blinkers from their sight, to listen to those that are involved and include them in the processes where they have to be motivated and high performing.
Enabling this level of understanding through the Rubicon-OPM® process, brings the vision, the cooperation between individuals and the drive to succeed as a team; will it fix all ill’s not it won’t, will it remove all pressures, no it won’t do that either, the benefits from this approach come from understanding, communicating, motivating and performing the way people prefer which brings out their best and gets you a better chance at hitting the targets that have been set.
