This week I have themed my blog to focus on ‘change’ and the leadership opportunities change presents.Working titles are
1) how people and leaders embrace change (or not)
2) why change is the new normal
3) from wanting change to getting changeWatch out for these later this week – change is such an interesting thing; almost all of us want it, but in the abstract we want change from everyone else not ourselves. Obviously self improvement desires are all about change in one’s self – but change addressing poverty, war, climate change are easy to salute and yet hard to write the check for.
The dissonance here reminds me of some other but opposite examples like time travel or teleportation which turn out to be only any good if you are the only person that has it! I would be rudely interrupted to find my great great great grandchildren popping in for a chat, and the idea of my mother-in-law being able to teleport herself into my bathroom is quite alarming to say the least.
Right, back to the serious stuff…
