At the beginning of all change there is often a fear of the new. In retrospect, changes usually lose their horror. How can one face change?In the end it's the frogs

How changes (don't) happen

At the beginning of the railroad, medical doctors warned of the dangers to passengers due to the speed of the new form of transportation, but today we use high-speed trains ourselves without harming our health. How could it happen?

"If you want to dry out the swamp, you don't let the frogs vote on it." Hardly any other aphorism expresses more helplessness and mismanagement in one sentence. Thinking about the drying out of the pond or closing a business reveals past failures.

Recognize opportunities in good time

The pond represents an existing business that has been built and operated over a certain period of time. Discussing the closure can only be the final step. But what about the many small steps before that?

Instead of adapting quickly to changing influences, it waits until the end to capitulate - to dry out the habitat of the frogs, to deprive the employees of their livelihood.

Carefully observe the environment

What about the signs of change or even threat? There are many chances to fend off the final step between 'running a business' and 'having to close a business'. A permanent market observation gives early indications of changed circumstances. For Company now applies:

Do not ignore it or talk nicely: That is already happening again! The growing competitive pressure or suddenly (!?) existing overcapacity is then the reason for restructuring or even the closure.

Inactivity in management

What a bad testimony of the management against the frogs - pardon employees - for their own inaction!

At a meeting in the specialist retail trade, the question was seriously asked whether “the Internet and online trade could not do this on their own again. Then the threat potential would be gone after all. ” Yes, dear retailers, the Internet will disappear, but only because it will be replaced by something even more powerful!

Recognize and react

The operators of horse-drawn carriages believed the end of the 19. Century also that the new way of moving with the automobile disappears again. Significantly, the car was not developed by any of them. Parallels to today's driverless car, with Apple, Google or Uber as drivers, are certainly not coincidental.

Timely recognition of the change, paired with a portion of courage and some luck, ensure the preservation of the pond instead of drying it out. He may change, the stocking may be bigger or smaller, but the pond remains!

Evolution, not revolution

Evolution is usually more successful than revolution. Radical intervention in nature leads easily to the contrary, B. Flooding after river degradation. Even in the economic life clear-cut and too short-sighted interventions often bring unimportant negative consequences.

The hype surrounding the Internet bubble in the 90s and the associated disparagement of the “old economy” has clearly shown this. The Internet bubble has burst and the "old economy" has experienced a real boom in the energy sector at the beginning of the new millennium.

Or frog forever

A poor report is the denigration of the employees. Who would like to be called a frog? Only one luck was kissed by the princess. All the other frogs do not keep their lives unspectacular.

Often employees of affected businesses recognize the signs of change at an early stage. It is the people in daily contact with customers and suppliers who feel the market daily. Why are not these people heard? Why are not their notes and notes taken seriously?

Management + Leadership = Success

Is it because there is no longer a distinction between management and leadership? The guiding and guiding of the German concepts makes this difference very clear. Thinking about the fortune of the pond is to guide you to deal with the frogs.

Both are spelled together. SUCCESSOR G. Managed in unison, leadership tasks are tackled using the same mechanisms as the management topics. There are processes, tools, methods and a lot of controlling. And too few people (liches).
