Time Pressure and Reflection
Even the saying is legendary: “I don’t have time to sharpen my saw!”, the carpenter says as he works with his blunt tools and wipes the sweat from his brow. The operative (output) pressure, which can nowadays be found almost everywhere, makes it difficult to take the time for the fundamentals and, for example, to reflect on the guiding processes and their corresponding structures.
Therefore, it is easier said than done to ‘take some time for a workshop’. To avoid constantly getting into decision-making problems, a basic decision will help here, as it does everywhere: Each year, at this point of time, x and y, our conclave will take place! With this ‘reflection on team reflection’, it is important to be careful and not to simply always speak routinely about the same, or familiar topics. This would be low risk and harmless. It is important, in such a case, to make these conclaves relevant.
