Updated: How to turn an oceanliner around in a tight bay… or how should you go from where you are to where you want to be, emotionally and all ways

how do you turn around a big ship in a harbor? trimtabbing to the rescueUPDATE: I wrote this article in 2007… when I did a lot of business training, business coaching… So please consider that some of what I say in this article is outdated in that regard.

I ended my core group training, and as it seems I now have some energy to coach.

In this article I am using an example in which we are starting a new business with the Kaizen 1 way… a business that is going to succeed and more importantly, where growing it causes the owner of the business to grow into the kind of person who can… can make a lot of money, can sustain growth, can have it all… can build a life worth living.

So, this article will be about change, or better said the art of change.

Change is scary, mainly because it is a disruption. And it also requires one to know what to do, when to do it, and how to do it.

Working with me is designed to cause lasting changes… but it is really always up to you. Continue reading “The Kaizen way of changing… aka Trimtabbing yourself to a full change”
