People love change, they just don’t like transition! https://youtu.be/pgVVsr8Q49w
If it wasn’t for change, we would not have electricity, running water, or indoor plumbing. We would still be using the teletype, drums, or fire as our form of communication.
But what is it about change that people do not like? It is the part of change that makes them uncomfortable.
Good leadership is all about scanning the landscape and looking toward the future to help make circumstances better for all involved. Great leadership is all about helping people make the transition through the change that needs to take place.
That is why change cannot happen quickly. People need timie to get ready for the change to take place. People don’t resist change, their programming does.
Great leaders help people transition from one habit to another. The period of transition, is when you make the best out of the new!
Think of the change you want as an ice cube. Frozen in a particular, solid shape. There are only two ways to change an ice cube! A hammer or time!
Change happens all the time. It is the great leaders and managers that create an environment where the transition from one habit to the other is meaningful.
