Leadership Minute: Change from Within

change

When we are no longer able to change a situation- we are challenged to change ourselves. – Victor Frankl

One of the hardest things for a leader to come to terms with is his or her inability to facilitate change the way they would desire. Leaders are people of action and sometimes that action involves change. But change can be hard to come by. It may be a simple matter of bad timing. It could be something more complicated. After all, not everyone likes change. So when the change you seek to create does not happen then you are left with only one of two options. You can accept it and move on or change yourself. Changing ourselves can be a challenging proposition. It can be hard to look inward and focus on what we need to do. But if change is what you desire look within.
