Achieving Change at the Individual Level
It is a known fact that in order to have an effective change implementation at the organisation level you need change at the individual level. Every individual aspiring to implement change spends his energy in the form of planning, debating, deciding, taking action, validating and reviewing etc. Even though the same process is implemented on two different individuals, the effect may not be the same for the 2 individuals.
What are the factors that vary? To enable better innovative change, what process could be used?
For example in Srikalahasti, the custom practice found to be effective by many is the following one:
1. INWARD ORIENTATION (one is supposed to have darshan of patala ganapathy and then pray. Every time when a problem is encountered it is not possible to visit Kalahasti then in its place we can have inward orientation by chanting Narayana Sukta and then firm up the faith chant Mantrapushpam in order to have effective in ward orientation
2. WORK ON PURITY OF INNER BEING. In Kalahasti we take the darshan of Lord Kalahisthwara, ideally performing Abhishek. In case it is not possible then performing Abhishek a homet we are actually working on the inner being.
3. ALIGNING THE ENERGY in form of planning, doing, reflecting, reviewing in order to achieve the aspiration. For alignment, we do the darshan of Goddess Gnanprasunamba, symbolic representation of energy we spend. In house we can do lalitha sahasranama, khadgmala etc to harness the energy and to get out of the negativity.
4. INCUBATION TIME.
In the current practice of Plan, Do, Check, Act cycle
we do not find any provision for inward orientation, working on the purity of innerbeing and incubation.
⇒ Is that the reason for deviation of effectiveness of change implementation from person to person?
