On your transformation journey, sometimes you meet the bright sparks who simply GET IT, and sometimes you are faced with the hard rock faced bozos, who are simply DEAD! They build a WALL around themselves. They simply have no desire to CHANGE!
What do you feel?
Do you get mixed feelings, mixed emotions ? Do you ignore this dead stock ? or do you try to turn them around ?
What if they are a critical piece to the overall transformation? with all the right authority and are riding the right power pedestal? and you simply cannot ignore them.
What is your next step?
For me, sometimes it helps to simply listen to them and give them your ear !
The act of empathizing with the hard rock faces sometimes melts them ~slowly~ one day at a time and then another day and so on.
It helps if you understand what are their Drivers? which may be in conflict with the transformation agenda! Sometimes their ego simply needs a massage.
By listening to them and all the other nay-sayers, you just break down one brick at a time and suddenly one day you find that the wall no longer exists, and they simple GET IT!
Time to move to the next wall to break !
Do you have any stories to share of your hard rock faces, who you were able to turn around? brick by brick ? what was your strategy?
