I’ve been taking high-tech golf lessons since mid-winter. I think they’re working for me; I love the new swing. But my scores don’t show it yet. My pro has told me, “When things are going wrong on the course, don’t try to correct the error. Just go back to doing what I’ve taught you.” Good advice. For sure.
When things start going sideways in your organization, do you expend critical bandwidth looking for brand new and/or innovative solutions OR do you test what you’ve learned over the years? How can you be certain to consider the basic approaches when you come up against a challenge? Give the tried-and-true a chance; it might work… it might work sooner.
