So…are the people on your team trying to avoid change. Are they simply trying to effectively deal with the change around them? Or maybe they’re actually try to make change? That’s actually a very critical distinction. The people you want on your team ought to be looking for ways to initiate change. Why? The only teams that have a chance of succeeding are going to change initiators.
It been a while since I went with a line from The Daily Drucker, but this line is just too good. And very memorable.
"The most effective way to manage change successfully is to create it…To make the future is highly risky. It is less risky, however, than not to try to make it. A goodly proportion of those attempting to will surely not succeed. But predictably, no one else will (March 1)."
Mark that down. The only teams that have a chance of succeeding are seeking to create change.
