Navigating through change with the IDEAL cycle
IDEAL helps you to shift your focus to the effects you want to realize. After (re-)articulating the outcomes you desire you will be in the perfect position to evaluate the effectiveness of your behavior, though patterns, decisions, systems, procedures, use of resources, style of communication and collaboration.
Implementing the IDEAL cycle means that
– you and your team/organization will speak the same language to address challenges, problems and results you want to achieve
– shift from a reactive to a creative state of mind and replace thinking backward with moving forward
– collaborate more effectively and with more fun using the variety of qualities already present and
– continuously improve, change and renew if and when the effects start to decline.
