Career Coaching: Agility: I was thinking about relationships and why it is some survive and some do not. I believe it’s connected to the level of agility within each partner. We all change as the years go by. It’s about co-existence in a relationship where both parties are going to shift their perspectives ever so often. The other needs to be able to hold strong whilst each takes their turn. Then it’s about aiming to find the new meeting-place that is essential for reconnection. I guess in a relationship context then that container looks like love and trust. It also looks like belief in potential
A similar love and trust are essential in both career and business contexts. If ‘the only thing we are certain of is change’ then we need to care enough about ourselves, each other and about our contribution to the world in order to accommodate that. All sorts of agenda, both internal and external cause change. Often it feels like change is unwanted. It is not always for the good or the bad. Sometimes it is essential. So we need agility in our professional persona.
If we are unable to respond to the changing needs of our client base, the business will fail. If we cannot accommodate new legislation top down, a business will fail. If we cannot respond to the agility of our competitors then again we will fall behind and fail. In our careers, we need to be cognisant of our own changing needs, the needs of our lives and our business sectors demands. We need to be agile, we need to respond appropriately, and the container that holds this might just also need to me love.
In order to survive change, we must care enough about the service we priced and the clients who benefit enough to risk doing what is needed. We must care about our colleagues enough; and them about us, to allow for the growth that is essential. We must care about our sector and our own values in order to do what is rightful.
