After the most recent Firm of the Future Symposium, I have to digest what I’ve learned. And I have to remind myself that learning doesn’t always lead to quick change.
How do we change? We can learn a lot about how we change by noting how we DON’T change. That is, we keep doing the same things we’ve always done because we stay comfortable. Admit it – it is comfortable to keep doing the same things we’ve always done. Staying comfortable holds back the wall of innovation waiting to break through and pour on our future profession. Putting ourselves in a place of discomfort will:
1. Prove that change does not hurt, and
2. Prove that change is not quick.
