Adbri Masonry – Edge moment

I loved the Think One Team philosophy. As I have come back into “normal life” so to speak, I have found that the approach is not really a departure from my everyday attitude, I take a sense of pride from that and even more so I have developed a feeling of responsibility towards the culture shift that we are determined to establish at our company.
 
Recently we had our regional roll-out of the “One Team” and also spoke about the details and goals of what we are trying to do in 2019. During and after the roll-out it became obvious to me that we had lead with our agenda and not with our real message of One Team. We had informed the wider team of sales goals, operational improvements and safety targets without really engaging them in the how or the why – the rest of the team through no real fault of their own had become spectators to a management agenda.
 
This is in no way at all a blame or a negative feedback, we are ALL developing and learning One Team at the same time as we are rolling it out to our great people.
 
Culture change is hard!
 
Gabby, I guess what I am asking is how can I use my enthusiasm and positive energy to impact people that don’t necessarily WANT to be impacted? People I have had no direct involvement with? How can I maximise the One Team approach without implying a hidden agenda?
 
Hopefully, this doesn’t come across as a rant, but I hope this is received as a “One Team” believer looking to be an active advocate for culture change in our business.
 
Thanks Gabby.
