Quote of the Week

C.S. Lewis said,

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”

When you’re driving people, your best-intended coercion is still coercion.

Are you being a tyrant about your change?

Why not try changing your focus to enabling the change (instead of enforcing it) and see what happens?

Experience tells me you’ll be more successful with your change.   At minimum, at least you won’t be a tyrant anymore.

Unless you like being a tyrant. Do you?

If you do, why are you reading this blog?

  1. This kind of tyranny only works on ignorant audiences. In this “knowledge era,” tyrrants are at a disadvantage unless they simply have ultimate power and authority.

    Our government immediately comes to mind. The masses are no longer ignorant, so the political ways of old are less effective and politicians can get nothing done.

    Being open and honest about change and empowering your people is ultimately more successful.
