Never Doubt that a Few People Can Change the World

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.


Margaret Mead October 21, 2015

I can’t help wondering, as I just left a meeting with a colleague, why so often, so many of us keep making the same mistakes over and over in so many change initiatives. By now it is an old story: the new change is not really an improvement over the old, people become discouraged, disengaged, and then burnout. In  my career I have witnessed and been part of this dysfunctional dynamic. For the last decade, however, I have had the opportunity to be part of change initiatives that thrive. It is my honor and privilege to offer a successful change management consulting approach as an alternative to the traditional model where 50% to 80% of change initiatives fail due to problematic execution, 70% of workers report they are disengaged and employee disengagement is estimated to cost between $450 and $550 billion annually in lost productivity. For further details see State of the American Workplace Report 2013 (1)  Research shows leadership makes all the difference in level of engagement. See Psychol Today response to Gallop Report
