Breaking Eggs, Making Omelets, Leading Change
Change is coming. Let’s be honest. Most of us have a love-hate relationship with change. When change is afoot, it feels like we’re walking on eggshells, but you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. It is not only inevitable, it is required.
There is no growth without change. Effective leaders learn to lead change. There are things we need to break in our lives, namely, the fear of change, habits that hinder, ways of thinking that limit us. There are things we need to make in our lives – commitment, trust, healthy relationships. We make our legacy by our choices.
Leading deep change requires courage, discipline and an intentional plan to initiate, invite others, and inspire them to action. Otherwise, you leave your legacy to chance.
You will learn three essentials for becoming an exceptional agent of change:
• What do I need to Break?
• What do I need to Make?
• How do I need to Lead?
Dr. Metler will communicate these steps by sharing some significant changes and crisis points in his own life that will help you unleash your potential as an agent of change.
