From Pam Scott, Oasis Solutions Group Partner & Director of Client Services
As we approach All Hallows Eve and we start seeing carved pumpkins, ghouls and goblins on every corner, I think about what else scares people personally and professionally and that is the dreaded “C” word………..CHANGE!
Everyone deals with change in one way or another: fashions change, jobs change, priorities change, the face looking back at you in the mirror changes. Change is constant and not many of us embrace it, especially when it comes to our jobs.
As I try to decide where to start on this series related to change, I think it’s important to realize that no matter the place, situation or destination, change starts with me/you. Is it possible to lead, promote or facilitate change if you aren’t willing to change yourself? Sure you can mandate change and threaten those that don’t, but how successful do you really think that approach will be? Short term, you may have some success, but long term it will fail.
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
