The key to change is trust. If people trust in the future scenario, they will let go the past. If people trust their leaders, they will believe the change vision. If they trust in a final state of stability, they have less fear about having some unsteady times. If they trust that their performance is evaluated in a fair way, they perform even without thinking about.
Therefore Change Leadership means to build trust to the people led. If you are a leader and you need to change, ask yourself openly if you would trust yourself. Talk about those elements where you have no guarantee as well as about those, where people can trust in you, and share fear.

I find peope are extremely reluctant to change unless they experience a crisis, be it financial, professional or emotional, they always seem to need a wake up call before actually making the changes necessary to survive. Is that always good?
