Change Management Fundamental Basics “Gangnam THE ROCK Style” – Part 15



Christiano will learn over time that it is always best to insure that “constructive competition” has everyone playing his or her “A” game as this tends to create added value for an organization as opposed to a “street fight style” environment that tends to destroy value.

In my opinion, many organizations underestimate the need for “constructive competition” to be properly channelled and managed during periods of change.

It is important for organizations to embrace the notion that “constructive competition” creates a healthy proactive environment to the extent that competitive energies and forces are properly channelled into constructivism.

That is, if “constructive competition” has everyone playing his or her “A” game this tends to create added value for an organization. However, if “constructive competition” results in a “street fight style” environment internally, this tends to destroy value for an organization.

In order to ensure that a “street fight style” environment is not a by-product of “constructive competition”, an organization needs to reward individuals based on their skills and abilities to add value to the organization and not on their “street fighting” skills to protect their personal or “click” interests.

This might sound easy in theory but often times this can be quite challenging in practice as everyone generally shares similar drives and motivations to succeed such that personal or “click” interests can often times cloud appropriate judgement and behaviours.

Therefore, it is important for organizations to build values, morals and ethics into the equation of “constructive competition” such that intelligence always prevails while “street fighting” mentality fails.

In summary, I refer to “Change Management Gangnam THE ROCK Style” as the belief that intelligence should always prevail while “street fighting” mentality should fail.
