Home Maverick Execution Unexpected changes requires agility

Unexpected changes requires agility

Unexpected changes requires agility. I’m often called the Maverick Change Maker due to my maverick nature and capabilities and my balanced Change Maker proclivities. I’m a proud member of The Change Maker Group and therefore believe that anyone can make change happen once they know how they make an impact and how they contribute.

After all, Maverick Leaders recognise and understand the impact that they make on others and the challenges that they are faced with! The Change Maker Group is also working for the greater good – so there’s perfect alignment with my Socialised Maverick nature!

The Socialised Mavericks’ Mission – Judith Germain

Another organisation keen to make Change Makers and leave a legacy is The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames. Recently we were engaged to help them develop Change Makers within one of their newly formed teams. We’ve developed an entirely bespoke programme that centres around the impact that they make and the ability to make (others) and themselves become a high performing team.

It’s an extensive programme that began with them discovering their Change Maker Profile and the programme is not completed yet.

We are now approaching the end of the facilitated taught programme (2 more modules left), and then the next phase, which is one-to-one coaching is to begin. It has been fantastic to see the positive change in the team (so far) and the solutions that they have already put into place to solve the issues that they are facing.

Late Monday evening I received a call asking whether it was possible for the next day’s session ‘Change is the new normal’, be delivered remotely, rather than face to face.

I readily agreed.

We believe that where called for, maverick, ‘wilfully independent’, decisions should be made to enhance the greater good. During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we need to take particular care to help others achieve success and stay resilient through these turbulent times. It was particularly apt that the session to be taught was ‘Change is the new normal!’.

In yesterday’s session we spent time with the prepared content, and then took more time to discuss things that would help the team work remotely and enhance their ability to be resilient, versatile, Change Makers. We especially took the time to discuss practical tips on how they can help their stakeholders manage and perform.

Unexpected changes requires agility.

We believe that wherever possible everything we do should be for the greater good. It is with pleasure that we have chosen to gift The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames a group coaching session in a couple of weeks, to help them remain a high performing team, whilst working remotely.

They will also receive additional (gifted) coaching sessions for them to use as they see fit.

Helping Change Makers to develop so that they can provide maximum impact and work for the greater good is a common purpose for The Change Maker Group and The Maverick Paradox.

I can’t wait for the next week’s session with the Change Makers at The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames. This time we will be tacking Trust.

What unexpected changes have you made that you have needed agility for?
