Mental Agility – the Foundation for Every Change in the Organization
Interview with Erich R. Bühler conducted by Renata Puszkiel
You have been accompanying various organizations across the globe during the transformations towards business agility. What do you find so exciting about the change that you decided to choose such a career?
Let me go back in time… my first job was in a software company back in Uruguay in 1994. During the first years of my career, I started realizing that change was hard. The more you invest in trying to change an organization and the ways that people work, the more you need to consider new paradigms and foundations. And helping people and creating new foundations have been my main motivators.
When individuals learn something new in the company, they are not just happy to apply those ideas there but they also take them back home and use them in their private lives. That is why we have to be responsible. Responsibility is not just about knowing that something is going to work or not in the organization, but about trying to understand how it will influence a person and might positively change their life.
