Early adopters can change the culture

I came across a game-changing idea a few years ago. An idea that fixes everything that is wrong with today’s corporate culture.

Since then, I have been trying to implement it at work. I have presented it to my boss, to my peers, and to my team – and it hasn’t taken off yet. So my next move is to embed the idea in the next all-employee training. By getting it in front of thousands of people, I’m hoping to infect enough of them to get the idea viral.

If you have an idea whose time hasn’t come quite yet, remember that there are early adopters in every market. Find the right one, and you might also find your tipping point.

One thought on “Early adopters can change the culture

  1. YES AND . . . Complementary to training, sometimes new ideas and approaches can be introduced “organically” by recruiting a smaller group of “high octane” influencers who align aspirationally and passionately with what you are trying to accomplish.

    Organizations are like living systems and frequently the greatest of changes begin at the margins and not with the masses.

    As the famed anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
