Why are Leaders So Afraid of Change: How to Buck the Trend
With change comes the potential for new opportunities. A change can be a new start, a jumping off point, and this can lead to a great deal of energy and excitement. Change can also bring uncertainty and fear. In today’s economy, you never know who is going to be made redundant, or when a company may have a downturn. As the leader, you will be in a strong place when you are prepared for the worst, but plan for the best. It can be tempting to play it safe, to stick with what you know. That mindset can, unfortunately, lead to stagnation and a lack of growth. By embracing change, you can get ahead of the curve and reap the benefits that other companies might be ignoring. If most leaders are afraid of change, dare to be the one who isn’t. Be different and stand out. Have the endurance to work through change and get to the other side. Yes, it can be scary, and the uncertainty can be stressful. But in the end, the only way to grow… is to change.
