Recently, endurance athlete and inspiring change management and sales specialist Sébastien Sasseville joined us at our Toronto office for a chat about the ever-changing structures in work environments. Among other things, we learned about a common mistake: having an inflexible idea of an end result. Instead, he says to step back when dealing with workplace change.
Injecting new ideas can mean allowing yourself to have less control, Sébastien says, using an example of campus architects who leave paths on new campuses unfinished, then watching student movements to determine where to later pave. Using that kind of macro view can be daunting at first, but can ultimately lead to more efficient work and a better understanding of how being open to forces outside our control can help us be better at everything we do.
