An organization intervention is not an organization inquisition

An organization’s present is built upon their collected history. This history is an essential core of their organization’s being. The past set the present capabilities. Rattling an organization’s history is rattling the foundation stones of an organization’s culture.

A highlight into what people do wrong attracts attention to … what people do wrong. No one likes association to something broken. No one likes it pointed out they work within, are part of, or manage broken processes.

An intervention should not open an inquisition for blame and shame, but an inquiry into the possibility of what can be.

The intervention as organizational rehab

Until I add knowledge, skills, and abilities as an important to individual and team success, to intervene seems less an option than a core competence.

We need to intervene before we lose even more of your organization’s ability and desire to achieve both individual, team, and organization goals.

We should revisit what has become the noise surrounding essential knowledge, ability, skills, and competencies organizations need from people ready to lead.
