Professor Zelikow (University of Va) in his lecture "The Emerging Governance Gap" said > "People don't change unless they think there is something better in its place". I used this quote recently in our SVP Cincinnati consulting session with Su Casa (Non Profit assisting Hispanic population in Cincinnati). Change is tough and requires a positive attitude when it is forced upon you.
Life circumstances outside your control will pressure you to change. You can either accept that change or resist it. Envisioning the positive and accepting/coping with the negative is a first step in creating the necessary attitude in the change management process.
The world (and it's history) shows one certainty - that change will happen. It can either happen with you or without you. What you can control is how you deal with the change.
