This Episode: The Secret Sauce Of Transformational Change – with Ian Ziskin

Lucinda is joined by Ian Ziskin, the lead author of “The Secret Sauce for Leading Transformational Change”, a work dedicated to leading transformational change on an individual, team, organisational, and societal level.

Key Takeaways

  • Many assume that because a system or process has worked for a long period of time, that it becomes immutable. We should always be open to adaptation and change.
  • To find truth we must define reality. There’s a tremendous amount of wasted energy in denying data and explaining away things that do not reinforce our preferred view of the environment.
  • We must surround ourselves with good people who wish to aid us in driving change. We cannot do it alone.
  • Most successful change efforts involve moving at a speed that feels uncomfortable. We need to embrace this discomfort, for that is where change happens.
