Change is not an Event

Neil Perkins makes a good point, very eloquently: change is a process, not an event. It combines a lovely example from nature and a great, self-deprecating personal anecdote. He captures how easy it is to think that cleverness is the key to mastering change.

I’m tempted to fashion this into a card, mug or tea towel to give to clients (and to remind myself) whenever we get lured into being over-ambitious in setting the outcomes for any meeting or event.

Thanks to TIm Kastelle whose tweet reminded me to read Neil’s post.
