Why people are willing to change

Willingness to change when you care

Last week on a coaching call, we had a “moment.”

My client was upset with all the changes everyone wanted.

Board Members. Equity Partners. Direct Reports. Vendors. Customers.

A huge sigh came from the other side of the Zoom screen.

So I responded, with all the Zen-ness I could muster, “You only change the shit you give a shit about.”

My client blinked then started laughing and said, “True! Very true!”

When people are apathetic, when they don’t give a flying fig anymore… that’s the real quick-sand.

So here’s the good news, Friends. When people want change, whether at home or at work – it means they care!

To changing the shit YOU give a shit about!
