Nature Opens your Heart to Who you Really Are
The Aware Way
corporate and personal transformation
Transformational change is not for the weak of heart, which is why many people and leaders shy away from it. Evolutionary change seems good enough, building on what’s already in place. But when is undertaking transformation not only a good idea, but essential? First, let's look at the difference between transformation and evolution.
Transformation is a process of intentionally shifting from what limits sustainable growth to what expands it. What results is a significant change in form and appearance. It’s similar to creating an entirely new landscape by weeding out what needs to go, planting new seeds and creating an environment for those seeds to flourish. This renewed landscape is an uplifting environment that has the right structures, colors and textures to inspire growth and productivity.
Evolution is different. It doesn’t imagine the best way to consciously create a brilliant future. It simply builds on what already exists. It cultivates a landscape that has already been planted and grows without directed intention toward progressive goals.
The right guide at the right time may make the difference between creating a mediocre landscape that generates similar results and an exquisite landscape that inspires greater success, meaning and prosperity.
As leaders, knowing when it’s time for transformation is the key to purposefully achieving new levels of clarity, inspiration and enthusiasm.
When is it time for Transformation?
In corporate work environments, you’ll know it’s time for transformation when:
Attitudes and behaviors are preventing achievement of goals and needed innovation
Challenges are overwhelming, instead of engaging
Enthusiasm and motivation are on the decline
Leaders are hesitant to make the tough decisions
Employees spend more time justifying their actions and less time offering creative ideas
Trust is eroding and blame is more common than accountability
Changes to the vision and mission are required to stay competitive
In your personal life, you’ll know it’s time for transformation when you:
Lose your sense of purpose and inspiration
Feel more often than not that life is a burden and you must shoulder the responsibilities
Feel boxed into a corner with limited choice
Numb challenging emotions
Express more nostalgia about the past than enthusiasm for the present and future
Feel trapped or stuck and are unable to see possibilities for change
Isolate from your friends, family and communities
