Can you make things happen by being passive?

Date: 2010-03-31 12:19 Comments: 0 st

I just came back from a meeting with a prospective customer.

In our conversation we came to talk about the phenomenon that those who want to prevent and counteract change in an organization can do so by being totally passive, especially if he or she holds a key position.

That way, you could say that passivity is a powerful management tool. By being passive, you can prevent things from happening.

But, what if we turn that around?

What if passivity could be a powerful management tool when you actually want something to happen. Wouldn’t that be the ultimate efficiency? Immense effect with zero input.

What would that look like?
What would be an example of that?
How did you do when you got a lot of things done by doing nothing?
