In Change Leadership, Change Management

“Chance favors the prepared mind.”

Louis Pasteur

Indeed, we live in a world of chance and, no, we are not at the roulette table.  We live in a world of unremitting change and transition, yet many of us do not have a prepared mind to successfully navigate its passages.  Let’s consider a few questions around the need for having a prepared mind for change:


  • Are you mentally prepared for surviving and thriving during change?
  • Why does it matter?
  • What has been your change education and experience?


Deeper Questions:

  • How do you make quality decisions regarding change without knowledge of the topic and an assessment of critical risk factors?
  • How will you grow if dependency is your constant companion?
  • It is a short life, how are you making a difference for yourself, family, and community?

Time –          

Living in denial is dangerous, you do not have the time to prepare when urgency strikes; and you are unable to recognize the opportunities that are present.

Capability –

Not many of us are born with the gifts of Aristotle, Newton, or Einstein; we need to develop a reservoir of knowledge that readies us for a flash of insight/inspiration, or quiet realization.
