The Sherpa Shuffle

Leadership Nudge – SHERPA SHUFFLE

This summer I spent a week hiking in the Swiss Alps. I had a full seven days to hike, think, learn, admire, and reflect, among other things. In my Leadership Nudge™ this week I want to share one of the things I learned and how it applies to changing your culture.

On the third day of our hike, we ascended to the top of the Col de Torrent. In a matter of hours, we climbed from 6000 feet to 9000 feet. For a guy who lives in the flat state of Florida, the hike was pretty demanding. To help me, our guide, Hashmat Singh, taught us the Sherpa Shuffle.

To execute the Sherpa Shuffle, one takes the small steps and exhales strongly. The Sherpa Shuffle saves energy on the mountain. It minimizes load on your cardio-vascular system, and it also helps you maintain your balance because your body weight is over your feet. You can do it all day long!

Our Leadership Nudge to you this week is this:

When changing culture in your organization, take small steps. The important thing is that you make progress. Take a look your objectives and ensure they are a fit for your group. If it seems like you are biting off too much, make your steps smaller and continue making progress.

Let us know how it goes!
