Lean into Change #2: it is not a zero-sum game

If you see change as a zero-sum game, then everyone loses; you in particular. With that perspective you have willingly put blinkers on your mind and creativity. Some leading professions such as medicine and education have fettered their thinking by confusing social and economic pressures to improve service provision and operational efficiency with diminished professional decision making. There are an infinity of ways to bring improvement into any work place. Improvements are possible to better work flow, better outcomes for students and patients and better professional satisfaction.

Improvement is by definition a change in the status quo. Any kind of change needs a champion. Become a change champion by moving to the center of the changes going on around you; become an initiator of improvement innovations; develop the situationally specific metrics that tell you and everyone else what works and what doesn't.
