Richard Archer, one of our associates, was in Liberia recently evaluating and advising a local micro finance program. Adding education in a performance intervention gives people a face to face view of a potential future.

When we are working on performance interventions - "visits" are one of our "go to" tools for leveraging change. In our work, it has never failed to have an impact. Never. It is very difficult for people to imagine a different future until they have "context" - the experience of seeing someone else do something you could not imagine or thought impossible.

Great words to remember when you have a facility or business that is in crisis.   When people in any community are faced with a threat to their existence, the same principles apply

 

1. Always act with the understanding that people are better prepared to succeed when they make their own chocies.   Too often in crisis, leaders remain in directive mode for too long.  While some things may improve, dependency grows, leaders become overwhelemed again and the whole thing begins to fall.

 

2.  Reality setting is important.  Building trust for your leadership is critical.  For a unit that is failing and facing a crisis it is important that you take every opportunity not only to inform but also educate.  Education means providing "context." 

 

3.  Context is explaining "Why".  Context helps people to process information, to understand the "Why" in addition to the what.  The more you educate, the more you empower individuals to make choices. A business facing a performance crisis needs people to make chocies and to choose with the context of success in mind.
