#019: Digital Leadership and Change Management (Part 4)


What’s your role in digital leadership?

If you’re looking to make a change in the workplace, it needs to start with you, the leader. Telling someone to “change” doesn’t get the job done. It starts with you taking the initiative. 

Today, you’ll discover some key truths to change and what it takes to be a true leader.

“In other words, change is situational. Transition, on the other hand, is psychological. It is not those events, but rather the inner reorientation and self-redefinition that you have to go through in order to incorporate any of those changes into your life. Without a transition, a change is just a rearrangement of the furniture. Unless transition happens, the change won’t work, because it doesn’t “take.” ― William Bridges, Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes
