“It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.” — W. Edwards Deming
“Leaders are dealers in hope.” — Max DePree
“Hope is the thing – that perches in the soul – (a)nd never stops at all.” — Emily Dickinson
“Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.” — Arnold Bennett
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” — Maria Robinson
Why the emphasis on hope? Leaders have an obligation to maintain “momentum.” Propulsion is achieved through attachment to a dream – hope for a better future. Through a clear vision, a well-thought-out strategy to achieve the vision, and carefully conceived and communicated direction, leaders enable everyone to participate and be accountable for achieving the dream and sustaining change.
If you have lost momentum, dream together.
