Even my husband is starting to wear tired of this never ending ambiguity and wishing for what he loved about our life before the coronavirus. We see the signed of the desire for normalcy all around us. Even if our employees are happy working from home, there are obstacles and challenges that have them wishing for the end of COVID.
Living in ambiguity begs for a time that is familiar even if it was uncomfortable. Our organizations are designed to maintain the status quo regardless if it worked or not. How do you plan for the future, when everything is so uncertain?
There are all kinds of planning. One that is rarely used is transformational planning. Transformational planning is when you know the general direction, but you don’t know how you will get there or what it will take, and sometimes you don’t know where “there“ is. It is made for times like this when everything is changing before your eyes and nothing that worked before will work now. And yet we have a desire to survive, to make a difference, to be successful, and to continue to grow in a good way. It is the how that is illusive.
We are in a global transformation right now. Nothing is happening the way it did before. We have new awareness of how things were not working for everyone and new understandings about how our systems are broken and are not equitable or fair to everyone.
How are you and your teams, scanning for what is our new reality? How are you shifting and changing because of it? What is your vision of the new world and the new future you get to create? How will you get there? How will you manage the dilemma of COVID 19 as it becomes a permanent fixture in our lives and society? How will your organization continue to shift and adapt to the continuing and evolving new reality?
At MKM Management Consulting, we are helping leaders and their teams think through these challenging questions. We are adapting our very interactive planning processes to a virtual world. We are changing along with everyone else and seeing new ideas and innovation birth itself out of the crisis that is COVID.
