Building the capability to win in your teams
Agility in and of itself can bring many benefits, leading as it does to change resilience and the reactive capacity and confidence to tackle whatever life throws at us. Meaningful agility however goes one step further, it harnesses energy and proclivities and focusses them into areas and activities that matter. The additional characteristic of meaning encourages a strategic focus, leading to future proof behaviours that are aligned to the requirements of the people and organisations you serve
As Rudy so ably demonstrates meaningful agility can come from the most unlikely places. The ability of individuals and teams to quickly pivot their skills and experience to match the lock-down crisis challenges has, for those of us who study change, been truly inspiring. The old maxims ‘Needs Must; and Necessity is the Mother of Invention’ are evident for anyone who cares to look.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties
When it comes to meaningful agility in teams old certainties and long held assumptions need to be examined. If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that the future is going to be a hell of a lot different from the past and those that can adapt will not only survive but thrive!
Our Change Maker Profiling tool can be of great value in assessing the meaningful agility proclivities any team can make in your organisation. Game Changing ideas in and of themselves are of little practical value. It is when they are combined with a Strategist ability to grasp the context and potential coupled with an ‘Implementers’ drive and energy to move the idea from ‘Post-It to Action’ married with a ‘Polishers’ eye for detail and resolute determination to make an impact that matters, all orchestrated with a ‘Playmakers’ innate abilities to get the best from others that any team can really be called meaningfully agile.
