The Seven Popular Myths in Change Leadership (Myth #3) — We want you to change us…really.

How open are you to “change”?

If you’re wise, you learn from others’ mistakes. If you’re average, you learn from your own. If you’re like me, you continue to react the same way to the same old problem until “banging my head against the wall” becomes SO painful, I succumb to change.

(In my twenties and early thirties, I blamed all my misfortunes on others. Nothing was ever my fault … until I finally realized, unresolved issues will resurface until given the proper attention they deserve. Yep, the same issues kept coming up until I dealt and learned from them.)

Any change will meet resistance because change is loss. In fact, meaningful change is a particular kind of loss. Are the following stages familiar to you?

  • Denial
  • Anger
  • Bargaining
  • Depression
  • Acceptance (Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross [1969])

Change is loss. Leaders who believe “popularity promotes change” had better start searching for the Change Fairy. (Full Story)

Thoughts?

PS — Wednesday’s topic — Myth #4 (out of 7): People love to collaborate.
