Change or Die
I read Change or Die in May of 2005. It begins
“What if you were given that choice? (Change or Die.) What if it weren’t just the hyperbolic rhetoric that conflates corporate performance with life and death? Not the overblown exhortations of a rabid boss, or slick motivational speaker, or self-dramatizing CEO. We’re talking actual life or death now. Your own life or death. What if a well-informed, trusted authority figure said you had to make difficult and enduring changes in the way you think and act? If you didn’t your time would end soon – a lot sooner than it had to. Could you change when change really mattered? When it mattered most? “
Interestingly, the scientific answer was most people would die. Yes, over 80% would die by their actions. Or, should I say lack-of-action. That was in 2005. What about today? Surely, that has changed—well you might be surprised.
