Become the Change you want to See


“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

These words, first spoken by Mahatma Gandi, are a powerful reminder of the impact that individuals can make, and how one person can often serve as the catalyst for wondrous change. Creating change is not always easy, but it is often desperately needed.

If you see processes you disagree with, judgements you think are unfair or business practices you think are unethical, it’s important to voice your concerns and promote impactful changes. By encouraging improvements, you’re not only creating better workplaces, but ensuring that the world is a better place.

Creating change or enacting new initiatives can often feel like an uphill battle. This is especially true when it comes to creating change in the workplace, where role-players may feel uninspired to react and oppose what is unfamiliar.  That’s why we’ve set out these three handy tips to keep you on track.

Focus on the baby steps

Fostering change is often more of a marathon than a sprint; don’t forget that things take time. Smaller changes can often be easier to achieve than larger or more dramatic ones and can still be a force for good.

Communicate your vision

It’s hard to create change when you’re the only one who knows what you want to do. Share your vision and goals with others to ensure that they know how they can assist you in achieving it!

Stay motivated

At times, change may feel impossible to achieve. Remember why you wanted to create change in the first place and what the benefits will be.
