If you talk to me about how I might be able to support you in your work, there’s a good chance I’ll eventually bring up elevations. What I mean by this is, what are we looking at? From your organization, to the time-frame, to the impact. From the thinking necessary, to the center of our perspective.
I like the analogy, because it’s generally easy to grasp. Most of us have flown and so we know the experience of moving from the runway to 5,000, 10,000 (you can begin using electronic devices), 20, 30,000, and so on. This is the same in an organization. You need different thinking at 10,000 than on the runway. You need different approaches.
This is true in all corners of our lives. This morning, I had the privilege of being in conversation with some good folks thinking about this. A big part of what we were discussing is how one can generate a language that’s relevant at all these places. It’s an exploration that I’m quite looking forward to.
