๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ” This was just one of the many questions and topics I've been working with Leaders on over the past three days in the Peak District.

Recognising this and positively shifting it can have amazing effects on how people engage with you and the outcomes.

By identifying where your team members and stakeholders are on the 'change curve', what they are feeling and their motivators are, you can lead change more effectively.

Leaders can use techniques and tools to develop new ideas and plans by getting their teams to be "Dreamers", "Realists", and "Critics", and have some fun whilst they do it.
