Working and Achieving Things DESPITE of a Bureaucracy

Steps to eliminate bureaucracy would result in an organizational environment that enhances creativity. But however well designed such initiatives to improve the organizational environment of employees may be, there will always be some residue of bureaucracy left with which one needs to work. Awareness of the following might help in dealing and coping with a bureaucratic setup:
  1. Work to eliminate the opposing power structure which acts as impediment to deliver value.
  2. Find a solution which satisfies all existing boundary conditions.
  3. Lead by setting an example.
  4. Strengthen the forces to move forward to achieve goals without dampening the spirit in face of opposition.
  5. However good the preparation has been, align the energy in line of true spirit of service.
  6. Care for treasury.
  7. Dissolve the unwanted gradually.
  8. Establish mentoring.
  9. Validate the truth.
Organizational (external) adjustments may work, however to be effective and peaceful, internal preparation at different levels of being such as physical, intellectual, emotional, conscious, subconscious and spiritual is required to achieve focus.
