This week I watched a presentation on change to a room of 200 corporate staff. The
presentation started with ‘who loves change?’ To my surprise (and delight) the whole
room - except 1 individual - raised their hands. The presenter was clearly taken aback
and reframed his question expecting a different result ‘ok, who hates change?’ and only
one person vehemently and proudly raised their hand.
Not achieving the expected result, the presenter continued with his presentation on how
pervasive change now is in the modern world. It was an entertaining presentation, but he
was clearly preaching to the converted, quite literally, this room was already on board.
You may be surprised to hear that the audience were staff in a large government
department, and until 12 months ago had been operating in an area that had undergone
little significant change in a long time.
