Leadership is in many ways a marathon rather than a sprint. Despite this we often see organisations continually chopping and changing:
While it might seem sensible and logical at the time, it might not be the best option long term for the following reasons:
Reason 1: There Is No Magic Potion
Reason 2: You End Up Going Backwards
Reason 3: You End Up Losing Good People
Reason 4: You Can Easily Stop Just Before A Breakthrough
Reason 5: Morale Falls Through The Floor
The truth is there will be times when change, and even change on a major scale, is needed. At the same time, make sure you are not changing just for the sake of it.
