Transformative change is both hard and possible. It is both exhilarating and discouraging. It is important, timely and worth doing. If not you, who?
“Practice both optimism and realism. Some people would have you choose one or the other. Believing in one or both is a choice. By holding on to the both, by being unwaveringly optimistic and coolly realistic at the same time, you keep that optimism from floating off into naïveté and the realism from developing into cynicism.” The Practice of Adaptive Leadership, Heifetz, Grashow and Linsky, p 297-298, 2009
Helping to bring about transformative change is both hard and possible.
