How do you see your organisation?
Is it a group of people trying to achieve a common aim?
Or a set of processes, policies and structures designed to facilitate smooth working and success?
Obviously it’s both. But where do you put your energy? Your thinking? Your leadership?
Better processes? Or more fulfilled people?
Again… I would hope it’s both. And often the intent is: “better processes will create space and time for the people and lead to more fulfilment”. Which can work.
But be careful. If you’re always talking about the processes, if you always tackle difficulties and change and opportunities from the process side, the people will notice. Without thinking about it. And they’ll subconsciously draw the obvious conclusion.
That you care more about the processes than you do about them.
