Successful Change Flows from Learning, Growth, and Development

Change can’t be managed.  While it can be ignored, resisted, responded to, capitalized upon, and created, it can’t be managed or confined to some orderly step-by-step daily process. However, whether change is a threat or an opportunity depends on how prepared we are. Whether we become victims of change or victors depends on our readiness for change. One of the most inspiring quotes from Abraham Lincoln, who endured a decades-long string of failures in business and politics before becoming one of America’s greatest presidents, is

“”I will prepare myself and my time must come.”

And that is how change is managed.
