When organizations believe they must change to survive, they often bring in an outsider to drive that transformation. But that can be as disruptive as it is stressful, leading to turnover, reduced productivity and sinking morale. The better solution may be in harnessing the power of existing teams to come up with ideas that trigger change and drive innovation.
The post identifies two questions employees can ask themselves to determine if they could be good change agents:
- Is there something I can do to make the organization a better place?
- Is there something I personally need to change to make myself a better employee?
Change is hard, and sometimes we do a lot of it in libraries. I suggest you read the post to learn more about change, change agents, and how to find such agents in your organization.
