We found an inspiring article, Leading Change from the Middle, in which Dr. Grant writes about the tug of war between those who want change and those who don’t.

Making space for people to talk, and remaining curious about the reasons for resistance comes from appreciating the unique Strength Lens we all bring.

Kudos to all of you who are open to change.
