On taking the plunge to join a new organization…
I believe there is a meta-decision before any leap of faith into a new Organization. Are you moving from an Organization that has constantly kept you stretched intellectually, spiritually, physically and mentally…or are you jumping on board to be the big fish in a small pond. That is the meta-decision you have to wrangle with. Always choose in favour of joining an Organization where you are likely to be the ‘worst’ or ‘weakest’ player – that is the only way to ensure that you are in a constant growth and self – value building trajectory.
Don’t allow any ‘Holy cows’ cause you to spend too much time agonizing over the current culture. Be willing to slaughter them.
Don’t be afraid to come with the answer. If you come in without a clearly defined vision that you are willing to evangelize, you may be perceived as a prophet promising to lead them to the Promised Land…sans a map!
