On Removing Organizational Mental Constraints

Many people may not enjoy doing classes on the weekend. However, I actually enjoy it. [Reason below]

It occurred to me during this last class, as I was discussing with the group ideas around bias, organizational constraints, and common dysfunctions around cultural change.

One student made a comment that spurred an idea in my brain:

Removing oneself from constraining cultural nuances often allows our minds to flow freely into the unknown… allowing for more emergent innovative thought processes… and the ability to speak freely about … things… anything.

I was speaking with an individual during a break about just this idea, and he said to me that he wouldn’t speak as freely if we had held this course on company property. This, is a sad fact for him! I empathized and felt a bit sad that this was the case!

Sometimes we need to remove ourselves from our current situation to see things from a different perspective. Maybe a fresh light. I think, the trouble here is… what to do with the information if you get to a profound revelation. What. To. Do.

That decision will be based on compromise… or rather, what will you be willing to compromise for (positive) change to happen.
