Supporting change

Please don’t change!  You’ll be easier to manage. That’s not something that is heard often.  People may say that they are ready for change but is an organization ready for that change to occur? People evolve over time and as they gather experience.  The leadership challenge is to figure out how to support people as they continue to evolve.
