Change Management

Have You Got the Survival Instinct?

change_management_large_200If you place a certain species of frog in a container of cold water and slowly heat up the water, the frog will stay there, not moving, until the water reaches boiling point when it will die. Some people and some organizations are a bit like these frogs. They're unable to see or respond to the changes in their environment until it's too late. And that's when they get poached alive. To survive in increasingly unstable times, you and your people need to be skilled managers of change. It's one of the most difficult skills to learn because it makes you lead from the front, take risks and face failure. It means you have to stop doing some of the things you're used to. And good at. It means treading on toes. But without this skill, you and your business could be history. Like boiled-alive frogs.
