Change Management Fundamental Basics “Gangnam THE ROCK Style” – Part 60
Christiano will learn over time that during periods of change, organizations should promote the belief that Hyperboles best illustrate that simple formula of life: God; Family; Work and Self avoids agony, pain and strife as aspirations, motivations and successes are rooted in a strong ethical foundation of life.
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 contaminated with “Materialistic, Narcissistic, Self-Centered 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 contamination of the mass with “Materialistic, Narcissistic, Self-Centered Syndrome” as opposed to a simple “Aspiration, Motivation, Success 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 “Materialistic, Narcissistic, Self-Centered Syndrome” is predicated on the notion that one should behave in a fashion that fulfills all of one’s personal, financial and political interests regardless of what it takes, whether legal, moral or ethical, as long as one gets all of the breaks.
Narcissism is a term that originated with Narcissus in Greek mythology that fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Currently it is used to describe the pursuit of gratification from vanity, or egotistic admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes, that derive from arrogant pride.
Although the world has come a long way since the days of Greek mythology, narcissistic behaviours in the modern day world have remained such that one should always be wary of strange behaviours for materialistic fame that may actually have their roots in narcissistic tendencies of the mentally insane.
For example, if one is leveraged to the gills in financial debt, this would tend to exhibit a modern day form of narcissistic risk, which can convert into survival instincts of a wild beast, whereby one will strike any and all who may be seen as a threat because one must protect their self-centered, egotistical and materialistic nest.
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 which I refer to as “Aspiration, Motivation, Success Syndrome” which is predicated on the notion that if one focuses on the simple formula of life consisting of equilibrium between God; Family; Work and Self; one will not be contaminated with narcissistic behaviours of the mentally insane as aspiration, motivation and success are rooted in a strong ethical foundation of life that no one can break regardless of agony, pain and strife.
In summary, I refer to “Change Management Gangnam THE ROCK Style” as the belief that Hyperboles best illustrate that simple formula of life: God; Family; Work and Self avoids agony, pain and strife as aspirations, motivations and successes are rooted in a strong ethical foundation of life.
