Embracing Change - Week of Dec. 21


Management Moment
By Doug Dickerson

Power Point: Lucy – “I would like to change the world.”
Charlie Brown –“Where would you like to start?”
Lucy – “I would start with you!”

Power Thought – It’s not uncommon for leaders to feel this way. Change can be an ugly word in any organization, and too often the temptation is to change people instead of systems. Change resistance is overcome when a climate of trust is built within the organization. The more people in the organization trust the leader, the more they are willing to embrace the idea of change.
- Doug Dickerson

Power Surge: If you would win a man to your cause, first convince him that you are his true friend. Next, probe to discover what he wants to accomplish.
- Abraham Lincoln
