When Moses was absent from the Israelites for 40 days and 40 nights, the people grew afraid and asked his brother Aaron to construct a Golden Calf to give them an object of worship. This is one of the most infamous cases of fair weather friendship in the history of the world. After all, the power of God was just demonstrated through dramatic miracles that delivered a people from 400 years of slavery. But these miracles, which everyone must of seen with their own eyes, were insufficient to overcome the strong cultural bias towards idol worship.
If we set aside the questions of divinity, this story says something powerful about culture: an entrenched culture cannot change overnight, even if an overwhelming set of evidence is presented that is should. During their time in Egypt, the Israelites had fallen into idol worship. And after hundreds of years statue worship, it was too big a jump to start worshipping an abstract God that no one could see.
The solution in the Bible is to create a Tabernacle an intermediary structure that was kind of like the Egyptian temples, yet worshipped God. This same principle applies today.
If you are trying to change the culture of a company, or to change yourself, a dramatic change is exceedingly difficult to pull off. It is better to create an intermediary goal, something similar to what you are doing today, but a significant distance towards what you are trying to achieve.
And if you are hoping the culture of your company will change, even a great leader like Moses may not be able to pull it off.
