This week’s focus: leadership
Implementing organizational and system change is (more often than not) fraught with peril. From the book Social Change 2.0: A Blueprint for Reinventing Our World by David Gershon comes this invaluable insight:
People are willing to change if they have a compelling vision and are provided tools to help them bring it into being.
Have you articulated a compelling vision for change initiatives you are involved with? Have you provided the tools (budget, resources, bandwidth, encouragement) to bring change into being?
Thought for the week:
“We create systems for the stakeholders, not for ourselves. As change agents, we have a fiduciary responsibility to protect the interests of the stakeholders.” Dave Gardner
