Are You Willing to be a Fool?

The world is changed not by the self-regarding, but by men and women prepared to make fools of themselves.”- P.D. James

Effecting change is an issue of culture and leadership. To make change you need to make new culture. Culture drives change. Change takes time. People will not act before they’re ready and many will need to be led.

The interesting thing about leadership is that it’s a choice. Leaders take responsibility, they choose to lead. The other interesting thing about leadership is that it doesn’t have to come from the top, it can happen at any level, but you have to decide to lead. The problem is that to lead, you must be willing to stand out. If you don’t want to stand out, you’ll need to fit in and by fitting in, you’ll never change anybody.

It takes just 10% of people to drive a revolution (it’s science). 10% of people to effect change. Who wants to stand out? Who wants to change the culture? Who’s with me?
