In his book Leading Change (HBS Press 1996), John Kotter states:
“A strategy of embracing the past will probably become increasingly ineffective over the next few decades. Better for most of us to start learning now how to cope with change, to develop whatever leadership potential we have, and to help our organizations in the transformation process. Better for most of us, despite the risks, to leap into the future. And to do so sooner rather than later.”
Do you agree with the author? If he is correct, how can we apply that to our own career plans?
