One Good Thing to Develop a Future-Ready Culture

Welcome to the first edition of One Good Thing: a 60-second read to help you spark action and be future ready.

Have you ever had a colleague say something like, “That won’t work here. I’ve been here 11 years, and that’s not how we do things here.”

It’s very hard to be future-ready if you shut down new or different ideas that don’t quite fit with what you think is going to work.

Here’s what to do instead: when you hear an idea that is different or unexpected, start by looking for One Good Thing about that idea.

When you start looking for one good thing in an idea, not only does it open your mind to possibilities, but you also start to create a culture of innovation.

Try this out the next time you’re confronted with a new idea and watch the magic happen!
