Change

And it’s not working!

Change rarely follows the predicted path!

So how can you be ready, firstly, to notice that it has gone off track, and then, more importantly, to correct things. Please remember that while we have tried to cover the common areas where things go wrong, we may/will miss out the one that is hitting you at the moment!

The common thrust through this section is recommending that you take time to stop and think about what is happening. Change often goes wrong when things pile up and we crash on without pausing to notice what is actually taking place around us.

The pages linked below are deliberately designed to encourage you to reflect. They pose a lot of questions for you to consider, and many of these questions will prompt you to go to other pages in this topic.

It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out nor more doubtful of success nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order of things.
