A New Vision for Britain

A New Vision for Britain

A New Vision for Britain

Theresa May's Conservative conference speech heralded a new vision for Britain.

She sounded bullish and confident as she outlined her new vision with the words "A truly global Britain is possible, and it is in sight."

This new vision will require a radical change in thinking.

For forty years, we have assumed that our future would be within European Union constraints, but now that is no longer the case.

Many people don't like the idea of making this change, and they are fighting it.

May said,

"Even now, democratically-elected politicians say that the referendum isn't valid, that we need to have a second vote.

Others say they don't like the result, and they'll challenge any attempt to leave the European Union through the courts.

But come on. The referendum result was clear. It was legitimate.

Brexit means Brexit - and we're going to make a success of it."

Change of Attitude

To achieve success means we will all have to undergo a change of attitudes and a change of plans.

May said "(Brexit) was the biggest vote for change this country has ever known"

Brexit means CHANGE.

And in order to manage change, we may need to change our mind set.

We need to be comfortable - no, MOTIVATED - by the prospect of change.

We need to alter our attitudes to CHANGE, because all improvement implies CHANGE.

Most people want things to get better, but for nothing to change.

People want everything to stay the same, but get better.

In order to make The NEW Vision for Britain a brilliant success, we need to develop our change management skills.

Developing Change Management Skills

Change management skills are as follows.

  • Recognition of the fact that: Change is inevitable. Change is the only constant.
  • Given a constantly changing environment, how can we get the best results?
  • Take back control. Make Goal-directed purposeful changes.
  • The first step to change management is deciding "What is the target, the goal?"
  • The second step to change management is deciding, "What is the plan?"
  • The third step to change management is managing the negative emotions that change often induces in many people. Emotions of fear, uncertainty and anxiousness.
  • The next step is: Replace the negative emotions with positive emotions of excitement and confidence.
  • The next step is to observe the results of your actions, and use this information as feedback.
  • The next step is to become comfortable with making continuous adaptive changes based upon the changing context, the feedback and the goal.

We need to be happy to live in a constantly changing environment.

Make change your best friend.
