Between the parallels
Today’s parallel started with 7am yoga. What seemed impossible one week ago in my first session, seemed to be more enjoyable this time and I allowed myself to roll into this session with a fresh perspective. I am clearly not a yoga master, nor will I probably ever be, however, I can still give it a go and allow myself the luxury of doing something for pleasure and not to win.
As I stretched and pulled my body into unfamiliar positions, my mind wandered to the way a team develops within an organisation undergoing change. We need to allow failure to be part of a success story and challenge our people to try new things with the mindset that the more we try, the better we get. Some incremental challenges can lead to bigger outcomes, but we need to have the space and freedom to try at our own pace.
