Is life vastly different than what you remember it to be when you were a child?
Things do keep changing. Sometimes unexpectedly. Sometimes for the better, and sometimes not.
As leaders, it's our job to facilitate change. We're here to lead others in the direction of improvement, for the cause of positive change.
Not every leader acts that way, but some part of every leader does believe that they have the right changes to bring about.
Part of every leader's job is to make certain that the changes we create ARE for the better. It's our strength of character that keeps our acts of courage helpful.
To do that, we need to know how to best align our goals with our mission and our mission with our vision. We need to know what it is that energizes our people. And, we need to mobilize our people by inspiring them with an important mission to begin with.
Change driven in the direction of our mission makes all the difference in the world.
Time is going to change everything anyway. Wouldn't you like to influence what those changes look like?
