Change and the Doorway

October 19th, 2017 · No Comments

The arrival and departure of persons has a major influence on who we are and what we do.

Every person who walks in the door changes the organization. The same is true for every person who walks out the door—they change the organization. Every entering and departing person changes who we are and what we do.

That’s just the way it works folks. The new person is not the old person. The new person is a different person. That is change; sorry if it upsets you.

And, by the way, the size of the organization does not matter. If we change one person in a 10-person or 10,000-person group, the result is the same—the group changes.

But I want the newcomer to literally replace the other person. And this is a contract situation. The contractor is supposed to have interchangeable parts, uh, er, persons.

Sorry, persons are not interchangeable. We are all different, and we know that.
