Thoughts About Change

I have written and thought a lot about change in the past.  Here, I present my most recent thoughts about change.  To begin, let us discover how it works.

How Change Works

We can find this in a very interesting YouTube video. Not only does it apply to organizations, we can also see it in societal change. The Two Loops Theory of organizational change is a model of change that tries to describe nonlinear emergent processes of change within complex organizations. It is a model inspired by looking at the growth and decline cycle of living systems. (source:  https://www.systemsinnovation.io/post/two-loop-model)

My Thoughts About Change Presentation

What Do We Foresee?

This is the list that I shared in the presentation:

Reduction Of Carbon To Atmosphere

  • Reduction of resource extraction (oil & gas, forestry)
  • Shrinking of economy to 1970 style or earlier
  • Changes in food production
  • Localized production 
  • Business sustainability rather than growth
  • Rise in prices
  • Reduction of delivery/long range trade

Indigenous Reconciliation

  • Stronger indiginous demands
  • Greater awareness by the total population
  • New collaboration models
  • More focus on environmental sustainability

COVID

  • New socializing patterns
  • Greater dependence on technology
  • Changes to school/education systems
  • Emergency systems stressed
  • Less international travel
  • Shifting employment
  • Staff shortages

What Do Solopreneurs Need To Do Now?

  • Offer Training
  • Explore alternatives 
  • Look Down the Road
  • Retire – Ha Ha – LOL
  • Offer ways to deal with the emotional aspect of change (hospice graceful death), rank the changes (what’s going to happen, what we would like to change & prioritize, offer change coaching.

Greetings from LowellAnn,

In my workstyle-lifestyle coaching work I love helping solopreneurs find direction, stay motivated and build systems that both support and promote their business. A great place to begin is the Solopreneur Evaluation Tool that will tell you where you need to put more time and energy.
