I know you know how to change because you’ve already done it. If you’ve got a few minutes, please allow me to prove it to you:

This will take you no more than 15 minutes:

List three major changes you have made in your life so far (personal and/or professional).

Choose one of those changes and respond to the following questions:

  • What was the most challenging aspect of this change?
  • What role did your values play in helping you make this change?
  • What role did your strengths play in helping you make this change?
  • How did you rely on or collaborate with others to help you make this change?
  • What did you learn from making this change?

If you’re not inspired, you’re not giving yourself enough credit.

Now, the bonus question: how will you apply what you already know how to do to the next change coming your way?

(To ramp up the learning as well as the fun, ask a colleague to also do the exercise and then get together to share your findings.)

Keep going. We need you.
