If not, it’s time to make some changes
If you find yourself concerned about a current situation, outcome or problem, simply trying harder or doing more of what you are doing now will deliver the same outcome. When you find yourself in this position, it’s time to stop and consider your options. What could you change to try and get a better outcome, or possibly the desired outcome?
In my work I come across people running as fast and hard as they can, not achieving an outcome they want and firmly believing they should simply try harder. My advice is stop, take a step back and try to get a different perspective. Look at what has worked for others in your position and take the learning from that and apply it to your situation. Often the smallest change leads to the biggest breakthrough.
The agenda I currently see in the NHS is one based upon an unmanageable workload, which is linked to a workforce crisis, and which requires real innovation to tackle it. This is the focus of my work: how does what I am proposing alleviate workload pressure on my client and their teams? If I can’t do that, I won’t propose the project.
There are some remarkable outcomes being achieved by teams who took the time to consider there may be a different way and many examples I am sure anyone can learn from.
If you are working in, or selling to, the NHS does your approach address the workload and workforce agenda and if not, is it time for a change in your approach?
