Having a Cause Bigger than the Individual

The real trick to delivering successful change programmes is not the methodology, structure, or process. No, it’s having a cause that is bigger than the individual – it has a purpose, it matters.

The minute you get into competition, individual achievement, and ego-driven thinking, it’s game over.

Because change is ultimately about solving a problem. And solutions come from teams of people – some of whom will suggest them, others who will object to them and then others who will solve the objections until eventually a solution is found.

But that behaviour requires trust, creativity, and courage.

  • People have to feel safe enough to suggest new ideas.
  • People need the freedom to be creative enough to explore new ideas.
  • And people have to be courageous enough to deliver new ideas and tread the untrodden path.

And these things are only possible when the cause, the outcomes are greater than the individual. Because that’s where people find their motivation – when they have a purpose. And that’s where people step into their true potential – when they are of value and can make a difference. And that’s where teams are made – when making the difference requires the contribution of all individuals, not the fame of one.

Change needs to matter and people need to matter.

NIK DAVIS is a business transformation expert and has spent 20 years in the corporate world. Her comfort zone is order, logic and applying analytical tools to solve complex problems. She is also a keen observer of life, a writer and eccentric. Nik has recently returned to the world of work after taking a career break to spend time with her family. Upon her return, she found that her perspective had changed, as had the world she was returning to. Nik decided to carve out a new place in that world and mould some of it to fit her too. Nik sees life from quirky angles, shaped by experiences and the vast amount of knowledge we now have access to. She likes to write about her experiences and observations. To ‘tell it how it is’ and to find a more authentic way to live, whether in our professional or personal lives. Nik often talks about finding ‘The Third Way’. It’s a philosophy about life, having a personal life as well as a career, making money and being socially generous, being logical and sensitive, living by the rules of a society but not being afraid to challenge them, inspiring others to feel good but not for your own ego, giving rather than taking. Nik wants to make a difference to this world by getting people to see things differently, to try new ways of working but most of all, to re-discover our true selves and therefore reach our true potential. Nik also has two other persona’s: nikdavis which is where Nik writes about her deeply personal experiences of life. Nik runs a facebook group alongside this website to create a safe place for people to discuss the topics that are raised in her blog. Nik’s second persona is Lilly Isabella and this is where she shares her passion of fashion and design.
