Please spend some time reading this guest post from Steve on the issue surrounding change:
by Steve Roesler (June 30, 2009)
We business types seem to enjoy–and gravitate towards–discussions about Change. And it’s almost always in the context of managing it, leading it, overcoming resistance to it…as if Change is somehow different than life.
Reading the rest of this post will help you see why Steve won the Best Leadership blog in 2008 and, as of this writing is leading in 2009 (but the month is far from over).
Change is important to all of us, as Steve describes, but as Steve would also agree, it is especially important to us as leaders. Because, as Steve says, Change is life, it is critical for all leaders to make understanding and communicating change a top job for us as leaders.
That means it should be a topic of every leadership development program, supervisor training workshop, and a part of any conversation about effective leadership skills.
