Exploring a reorganization? Put your rose-colored glasses on.

When planning a reorganization, leveraging the strengths of your existing employees, and considering your current resources, are important business strategies. However, when you’re creatively exploring options for change, focusing too hard on the potential behind your existing resources and current employee skills and abilities, and not enough on an ideal structure, with ideal resources, may stunt your ability to explore your best organization.

You’ll have every opportunity to problem-solve and experience the reality of the current state, and the road to the desired state—and all of the employee development, turnover, recruitment, crucial communications, renewed accountability, limited resources, skill gaps, and morale-building in between. But for now, if you’re in the first stages of exploring change, don’t forget to put your rose-colored glasses on. Visualize your ideal organizational structure, supported by ideal roles and responsibilities, to best support your business goals.

This exercise will provide a great launching point for action.
