An Era of Deconstruction or Reconstruction?

October 26, 2011

Out task? To collectively manage an era of deconstruction and reconstruction. None of us trained for that. Deconstruction can look like destruction, can feel like heck, can cause wide spread discomfort. How do we make sense of it? How do we live through it with grace?

How do you cultivate your readiness and capacity for this job? The 7 stages in the developmental cycle of change address this question. If you’d like a copy of the model, send me an email and I’ll forward the chapter from Savvy Leadership Strategies. []

Is there ever a time when chaos is to be celebrated and affirmed? Yes. When we’ve woken up to the need for change and taken the steps. When our expectations about change match reality – it’s a messy, exhilarating, scary, tough, heart opening, strengthening organic process. Wise leaders take this into account from the get-go and design processes for productive chaos (is that an oxymoron?)

Set up meetings where good conversations cover the potentials and downsides of deconstruction . Once people get their concerns and fears out on the table it’s possible to plan for the a new future.
