We spend a lot of time thinking about how to change things around us; how to change our organisation and the people in it.
That’s a lot of work. We tend to encounter resistance and often it takes a great deal of energy to make progress.
The reality is…
Sometimes we’ll get more “bang for our buck” working on ourselves first—making the changes we ourselves could do with making.
Then the chances are other people will be influenced to change too.
If we’re in a leadership position then we’re likely to have the most influence. People will do what we do.
So if we want something different to happen, doing something different ourselves might be a good place to start.
