The Environment for Change

Last week, I told you that change is painful. It’s hard to move from where you are to where you want to be. Most of us try to make change happen by ourselves and in a vacuum. It doesn’t happen that way. We must create an environment for change. However, most of us don’t know […]

I don’t want to be coy about this. COVID-19 is changing our economy. It will be different forever. As a part of this change, your job may change too. When I mean change, your job may be different forever. You could permanently work from home. You may go back to a different work environment. And […]
