What Is The Story?

What Is The Story?

Has a child dropped their beloved toy? Is this a display created by an out of control teddy bear collector?  Or is this teddy bear a dog’s toy? Every picture tells a story.  The question we need to answer is, what is the story?  This is a situation most change agents face every day.

Effective process change isn’t possible if we aren’t as objective possible.  Objectivity is needed  in order to reduce biased interpretations and we all have our own biases.  Validate the your observations before you react.  Conversation is critical to gaining context and understanding.  When you discover a new situation ask those involved to tell you their story, you will be amazed by what you learn.

Making up stories to fit a scenario might an amusing party game however jumping to conclusions without doing your homework can easily take you down a dead end  path.
