Why change? Change is uncomfortable and beyond our basic nature. We demand change from others and may reprimand them for not accepting change but when we are called to change ourselves, we resist it all the same.

Furthermore we witness change as a constant in life. New technology turns things upside down destroying the status quo and creating new opportunities and players. Our business’ external environment continuously changes creating new demands and new priorities. In a nutshell, change is continuous and we cannot ignore it.

The best is to foresee change and lead our companies to a gradual adaptation. If we don’t bother to foresee it, when it comes it will shake us abruptly and painfully.

Good companies with wise CEOs at their helm, identify the coming change in time and take the necessary actions to avoid the drama of the shakeup.
