Lean into Change #4: start with where you are

Bring some extra consciousness to work for the next couple of weeks. Notice gaps, glitches, slowdowns, overlaps, dead-ends and straight out time wasters in your workflow. Why are these happening? What effects are they having on your work outcomes? Who else in involved? Who else is affected by that problem or the compromise in your workflow? How are they affected? Have they noticed that effect? What can be done to change each contributing cause?

This identification gives you a community likely to be interested in making some changes that will improve work flow and results for everyone. This is your change team. They all have ideas and energy to contribute if the benefits are clear to them.
