Change Management

How many of us have been on courses which tell us you can't stop change ? Well I came across an inventor called Buckminster Fuller who had quite a cute trick to get the point over...
He would hold up his hand and ask "What is it?" People would respond "A hand"
He then pointed out that the cells were continually dying and regenerating themselves.
What seems tangible is continually changing: in fact a hand is completely recreated within a year or so.
Now do you believe there are people who can't change or who won't change....actually they are doing it all the time without noticing. If change is frightening then choose other words like "How do we evolve, grow, improve,develop, succeed....all words which involve change but guess what ? Are a little less frightening...
