Five Key Steps to Lead Change and Succeed
By Kgobati Magome & Dr Michael Hall
If you want to create and lead change in your community, there are five key steps that have been proven to work -
Alone you can do things, and achieve much. Yet, if you really want to achieve something great, if you want to invent or create something of lasting excellence, you are going to want to do so within a community or a team.
As the great African Proverb states, “If you want to go far, go together.” Going together- collaboration- is an incredibly powerful approach. It has brought us the Pyramids of Egypt, a man on the moon, the space station, as well as various other inventions such as Facebook and Twitter among others. Closer to home, it is the power of going together that brought South Africans the “new Rainbow South African Nation” and continues to bear fruit for many causes the world over.
So, as we continue with this year’s no violence against women campaign, we want to remind ourselves of how to make the best of this power of going together to succeed in leading the change we want to see.
