"We can’t control how things will turn out, what victories we’ll achieve or games we’ll win, how our jobs will go or how our day will be. But we can control the process" (Calum Marsh).

With this Change from Within methodology it is vital, in the end, to let go and trust the process. Of course after taking all the necessary preparations. But in the end you have to take the training wheels off and let your 'child' do it on its own!

"What does it mean to trust the process? On the one hand, it can be a frightening proposition, a willful act of repudiating one’s responsibility. “Trust the process” has an element of deference, and can sound, when you’re called upon to do it, like a defiant, devil-may-care reasoning, like “don’t worry about it.”

On the other hand, “trust the process” is about reclaiming control — at times and in areas where our control is limited. We can’t always control results: We can’t control how things will turn out, what victories we’ll achieve or games we’ll win, how our jobs will go or how our day will be. But we can control the process. We can do what we can with what we have in front of us, and have faith that it will see us through. We can’t trust results — but we can Trust the Process" (source).


Especially with creating a (more) Learning Culture you have to focus on the process, not on the end result! There are no certainties in this process except for one thing, the end result will be different than expected!

This is not a bad thing to happen. On the contrary! Facilitate the flow, make use of the energy and motivation of staff and management. Focus on the creation of the right circumstances, context, environment, tools, support etc. Then let it go. The end result will be stronger and more sustainable then ever!

If you want to control to much, then it is likely you realize the opposite of what you want; wait and see behavior instead of taking responsibility, ownership and initiative!


We can’t control how things will turn out, what victories we’ll achieve or games we’ll win, how our jobs will go or how our day will be. But we can control the process.
