Change comes upon us gradually.
Change comes in our organizations when we hire one person, and then two, and then more, who think differently about the mission, vision, values, and goals of the organization.
Change comes when the people (or persons) at the top of a hierarchy choose to give up their power over and engage in power with; and, not as a marketing ploy or with lip service.
Change comes when a person in an organization, decides to take a risk, stand up, challenge the status quo respectfully, firmly, and consistently.
Change comes when technology creeps into systems that we once believed were sacrosanct, but are now revealed to be hollow.
Change comes when we are lamenting the things that have passed and are looking with fear at the future that has yet to come.
And then, change is upon us all at once.
And we collectively can’t remember a time when the change wasn’t the norm.
