In case you experience frustration, cynism or a feeling of uncertainty, use these questions to create a better balance between expectations and reality.

  1. What do I expect?
  2. How do I perceive reality?
  3. What specifically is the difference that triggers an unbalance?
  4. How do I feel about that?
  5. What is the call to action?

Healthy balance

We experience a healthy balance between expectations and reality

Many team members experience an inbalance between expectations and reality. In most cases because external expectations are not properly aligned with or exceed the available resources. A proper balance is a prerequisite for achieving a sustainable level of performance. A continuous inbalance creates poor communication and a lack of alignment (Source: Ruysdael research on connected leadership).


AdaptivityNew situations might require another approach. Both as a person and a a group we need ‘to make a new path’ of thinking and doing. That an a healthy interaction between people facilitates the group flexibility and its ability to adapt to unforeseen situations and events.

The success strategy: Think big & act agile. When needed we facilitate a well balanced change of underlying systems, structures and mindsets. We can discuss this factor using the following success markers:

  • Energized
  • Resources
  • Healthy balance
  • Agility
  • Optimal control
