Implementing change takes courage and means taking risks!

When leaders want to introduce change there will be those people who do not want their ‘tranquility’ to be disturbed. They are feeling very comfortable and just want to be left alone.

Effective leaders introducing change will be pushing the limits, taking risks and of course it can be a dangerous place. They need courage and determination.

Are you ready to enjoy the risk of introducing change?

Great subject (very close to my heart).

Effective leaders also need to encourage their teams to take risks!

One of my posts this coming week (likely on Wednesday) will be about leadership in change.

Congratulations on being blogtipped (see Phil) and Happy Birthday!

Thanks Phil - I feel honoured by your nomination!

Ann - 'Risk taking' is often not really 'risk taking' at all in my experience. No one ever gets sacked for taking a risk - as long as it is not going to be harmful, negligent or plain silly. If anyone does get in trouble for taking a risk then they are in the wrong organisation and maybe need to be somewhere else.
