Have you wondered why our logo has two curves with a common island like shape in the middle. The sigmoid curves or S shaped curves in our logo reflect the focus of ILIFESigmoid’s focus in learning. Each S curve represents the process of investment, development, growth and decline of a career, a profession, a product, a business model or a technology or an idea.
When one is in the same S Curve and has reached a steep growth phase, the learning is incremental and becomes short term focused. It also tends to perpetuate the comfort zone that gives a sense of stability and equilibrium. But such stability could be deceptive at the turning points in life of an individual or organization. The transition to a new direction, path or pattern is essential for long term survival and growth.
Managing such a transition, in the life of an organization or individual or career, is a critical aspect of survival, growth and success. ILIFESigmoid focusses on the critical point at which one takes the first steps to look for the next curve. This is when the most difficult learning happens. It is a point of inflection, where one has to walk on the old curve and yet invest in the new S Curve. But there is no guarantee of success in this investment. It is also more difficult to accept that the “letting go” of the past success is essential, in fact inevitable, in the future. These moments are filled with doubt, fear, restlessness and a gravity like attraction to the old ways that led to the present success.
ILIFESigmoid supports this process through offering the knowledge, the emotional support and the insights and understanding of real life challenges. Each person’s or each organization’ transition is unique and often people look for assurance that someone has already tested and tasted the success in the new S Curve. That is not necessarily the best approach. In fact it is the cause of many of the failures of change management in both personal and organizational lives. Often people tend to use the old S Curve structure, framework and approaches to manage the transition and the new S Curve.
ILIFESigmoid will convince its clients on the need to think and act afresh for the S Curve to be seeded with the ingredients that will lay a strong foundation for the success in the new S curve. It may also may necessary to give up on a false start and discover the S curve afresh. This learning calls for patience, perseverance and courage which are the hallmarks of successful leaders.
ILIFESigmoid gives the desired level of instability and stability that will create the learning space for one’s new S Curve. The investment in this process has to reach a threshold level so that the new S curve can become the bread winner or winning proposition. This investment is in terms of one’s energy and time for individuals and in terms of resources and support provided in organizations.
As technology, life styles, and environment rapidly change and become short lived or unpredictable, the S curve durations could become shorter and one may face as much as 4 to six major transitions in adult life. Therefore the learning for transition that you can learn from ILIFESigmoid is a long term investment for the future transitions also. And surely we will learn from your experiences and challenges.
