There’s an old Gapingvoid cartoon from 2004 that said, “Business is change. There is nothing else.”
This is a variation on that idea…
Yes, we’ve all heard the platitude, “business is change” a million times before. We all get it.
But do we, really?
It used to be, you’d fight like hell to get to this one top of this hill, and once you made it, you’d spend the rest of your career, enjoying view from the top.
That worked fine, back when the world was changing every 18 months.
18 months. That’s how long it now takes the old rules to no longer apply.
So you need to be ready. More importantly, your people need to be ready.
That’s what being leader means now. Making sure they’re ready. Rock on.
