How are you helping others to change?

This Sunday's sparkenation.

Unfortunately old management still has a hold on many people. It's about control and the functions of planning, organizing, directing, controlling. Most people have had enough of this.

See here for what management in the 21st century is really about.

Modern leadership is about inspiring, influencing and impacting people. It's about helping people to change, never telling them or directing them to change. As Peter Senge says “People don't resist change. They resist being changed.”

One way to help people is to give them tools for change. I provide many such tools for my clients. The key though is not my tools, rather it's people using them in their own way.

"You can’t change the way people think, all you can do is give them a tool, the use of which will change their thinking."
Buckminster Fuller

How are you helping others to change?

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
