Ingredient 1 - Laying a Foundation for New Ways


(handling "endings" and "beginnings")


. Building-on (not burying) the past and starting anew by

- breaking the ice

- unloading old baggage

- understanding why change is necessary

. Changing inappropriate behaviours

. Building the right relationships and self-awareness

. Starting to achieve the emotional buy-in/ownership

. Encouraging "reflectiveness", ie adopt a helicopter approach

Some interesting thoughts on endings and beginnings

Janus = the Roman god of endings and beginnings (exits/entrances)

Janus (gatekeeper) = a 2-faced man, looking forward and backward at the same time

January = the end of the old year and the beginning of the new one
