As we begin 2014, let’s start at the end.
They are in the vanguard. This puts them ahead of the pack. It means they are ready. It also makes them vulnerable. There are bruises, and battles, yet Change Agents still ask:
How can I help?
The currency of social business is a deep understanding of emergent themes and practices in culture, technology, organization design, and the impacts on, and motivations of, individuals. Change Agents are rich in life and learning.
Change Agents are in the flow. They believe in networks and net work. They trust. But flow without hustle is mere meandering. Hustle is a willingness to connect with others and (co)create a vision of a better tomorrow. Change Agents say
“I am part of the solution. I can help. Let’s talk / work.”
Change Agents work out loud. They do not have all the answers. They believe ‘share’ is the new ‘save.’
Mostly, Change Agents are curious. Curiosity is the kick-start, the prerequisite. It is the muscle that helps us manage deep, continuous, uneven change.
Curious? Welcome to Change Agents Worldwide. [Oh, you are already here! Excellent.]
