What To Do When Things Go Wrong While Using the IKEA Effect

By Mo Bunnell

Today is the final video on Building Everything Together. In this episode, I want to share the four things that can go wrong, and what to do about them. Just because things go wrong doesn't mean that you give up. There are things you can do to adjust and move forward regardless of the issues that come up.Today we will cover what happens when:   1. Priorities change

2. The timeline changes

3. The team changed

4. There are issues around the finances

You have to avoid getting discouraged when things go wrong. These kinds of things come up. You can't control what happens to you, but you can control how you react. So decode which of those four is the issue. And then with grace, empathy, and extreme helpfulness, you go back to the client and you co-create the solution.

You can engage the IKEA effect during these solutions to help everybody achieve what they want to achieve. When issues arise, it always comes down to one of these four things. Once you know what it is, you can work with your clients to help them help you come to the right conclusion.
