In today’s fast-paced world, change is becoming more of a necessity than a luxury. And yet, many of us, understandably, still have a love-hate relationship with change. How comfortable is your comfort zone? Should you take that step onto new, unknown territory? Once you do, can you convince others to do the same? Learning how to answer questions like these is crucial, if we want to truly innovate in our jobs, communities, and lives.
In this talk, I’d like to share some of the lessons that I learned about inducing and managing change, both in myself and in groups I’ve worked with as a documentation writer, Agile scrum master, community manager, and diversity advocate. Magic solutions are not guaranteed, healthy discussions are encouraged.
