And no this has nothing to do with Elsa, Oleg, Disney or dreadful karaoke…

This is an extension of my occasional blogging and part of a Movember series that I’ve started at work, linking change leadership to stress management and improving personal well-being, so please cascade to your friends, peers or colleagues as appropriate.

Last week at work I shared and introduced some of my colleagues to the ‘Fisher’ change curve and today I’d like to take 2 minutes of your time and provide a break to your commute or a coffee moment in order to consider what happens when we get stuck before we even start off on a particular change journey.

3.    There must be ‘dissatisfaction with the status quo’

If any are missing, then the likelihood of adoption and implementation are significantly reduced.
