    Ironies of the Change Management Industry

    Hi Richard, this is a fascinating article. I've done a lot of work that can be described as "change management" and it's really enlightening to see what works and what doesn't. Cynicism creeps in when leadership isn't committed in word and deed. Your point #4 about simple complex leadership really resonated with me. There's no single formula or model for great leadership; there are many paths and they all require a lot of work and self-awareness.

    Hi Richard, I agree of course in some parts, in some I differ. What stands out the most for me is point #3. I think that travelling is the best way to open people's minds, then exercising creativity, and experiencing something that takes you out of your comfort zone. At the end, being disruptive for me is doing something new to the extreme so people won't feel comfortable with it. I agree that nowadays the way people perceive the concept is wonderful, opening society's mind will bring so much development in all aspects.
