Change Management Fundamental Basics “Gangnam THE ROCK Style” – Part 63
Christiano will learn over time that during periods of change, organizations should promote the belief that Hyperboles best illustrate that “THE ROCK Syndrome” creates normality of respect, integrity and honesty as opposed to any other “Snake Copy”.
In my opinion, organizations need to embrace the notion that during periods of change it is critical to insure that policies and procedures are in place to identify individuals inflicted with “Contaminated Soil Syndrome” as a by product of significant change.
It is important for organizations to acknowledge that during periods of change, the greatest risk to successful change is posed by infliction of the mass with “Contaminated Soil Syndrome” as opposed to a simple “THE ROCK Syndrome”.
In this New World Order (NWO) where there are persistent changes, be it through mergers and acquisitions or restructurings and reorganizations, the only constant which is assured over time is that of change. In order to be able to compete in this New World Order (NWO), there is one of two generic techniques.
The first technique which I refer to as “Contaminated Soil Syndrome” is predicated on the notion that if an environment is contaminated with weak people who easily succumb to peer pressure to follow the tantalizing materialistic opportunities of success, that environment will tend to become poisoned like Rattlesnake stress creating an environment of duress.
For example, if Rattlesnake #1 lies, steels, cheats and is corrupt but achieves success in terms of title and/ or salary, this will tend to produce Rattlesnake #2; #3; #4; etc. to the point that an environment becomes completely contaminated with snakes such that one must become a snake in order to survive the contaminated venom stake.
That is, people tend to become a product of their environment such that if the foundation is like contaminated soil, the off springs will tend to grow spoiled.
In simple English, on bitter soil tends to grow bitter grass that multiplies exponentially until everybody is kicking everybody’s ass like a Rattlesnake shake that makes everybody ache.
As is evident from my Hyperbole above, this type of approach is destructive, counterproductive and chaotic by its nature. For the record, Hyperbole is defined as the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. Hyperboles may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create strong impressions but they are not meant to be taken literally.
Now I would like to focus on the second technique that I refer to as “THE ROCK Syndrome” whereby one lives one’s personal and business life with honour consisting of honesty, integrity and respect that transcends any religion based on the notion of common sense.
Therefore, it is important for an organization to instil strong values, morals, principals and ethics into the lives of each and every individual within an organization regardless of religion, race, culture or any other personal attribute.
For a healthy work environment will breed model, law-abiding citizens who will set a positive example for others to follow culminating in normality of respect, integrity and honesty as opposed to any other “Snake Copy”.
In summary, I refer to “Change Management Gangnam THE ROCK Style” as the belief that Hyperboles best illustrate that “THE ROCK Syndrome” creates normality of respect, integrity and honesty as opposed to any other “Snake Copy”.
