Durability and Change

September is shaping up to potentially be a great month.  Sales are picking up, events are cooking, elections are creating a buzz, deals are happening with steady frequency and then it hit me--BAMB...a key player of my team resigns!

One of the greatest compliments anyone can give me is to hire one of my colleagues.  Change is constant, both good and bad.  It's how you deal with change that makes the difference.

I'm not sure yet of the structural changes to occur, but it's a good process and it will involve the thoughts and creativity of many.  Involving others in the creation of new directions and strategies is key to ownership and ownership is the cornerstone of commitment.

Too many times I have seen peers create a plan and launch it without buy-in.  Their execution often has limited success when if they had stepped back, involved key stakeholders, assigned responsibility and then pulled the trigger their probability of success would have been much higher.  Key to this scenario is a win-win mentality.
