Are You Uncomfortable?

In a world of rapid and continual change, radical personal growth is required. Discomfort motivates us to change, to explore, to seek out new answers. No one likes to be uncomfortable. But, there is a correlation between our growth and success in life and the discomfort we’re willing to impose on ourselves. Growth necessarily takes us outside of our comfort zone. We need to get used to it. If we are going to stay relevant, we are going to be uncomfortable.

N2Growth Blog

People are less likely to resist any recommendations for dramatic change in their area of the business, if it comes in an objective, non-threatening way. All that is left to do is develop the plans for the projects that are needed to actualize the new workflow and institute a process for continual change.

As someone who takes leadership and coaching seriously, I have been reading up on goal-setting, aspirations, and all that change stuff … As a coach, I help others identify, clarify, plan for, and achieve goals.

The value of dreaming big is that your goals and the actions you take to reach those goals are more impactful and life-changing than otherwise. Change Management Leadership

I began to wonder if I was drawing a parallel to the work of Benjamin Bloom and Geoff Colvin that was inappropriate.

When the stress of change becomes too much for an organization, the solution often erupts into an "un-ignorable moment"--an event or action, or even a comment, that stops you and your organization in its tracks, a moment when it becomes blindingly clear that new ways of working are clashing with existing ones. .

An Organizational Growth Cap Theory

” Technology is a major driving of change and is changing very unpredictably as we see in these forecasts: Lee DeForest, the “father of radio,” said in 1926 “While theoretically and technically television may be feasible, commercially and financially it is an impossibility.” We see how Peter Drucker’s thought leadership continues to guide leaders and organizations.

Making Changes in an Established Church

Ron Edmondson

In the established church change can be more difficult to make than in a church plant.

There are many different methods and strategies for improving your SEO, and they continuously change as Google rolls out new and improved programs to fight against spam and to improve the quality of their links.
