My answer to this may not be what this hot, sexy and popular nor mainstream. I suggest that changes occurs out of curiosity of pain and suffering. It is with the investigative and mindful orientation that there is a possibility for some root causes and truths to be revealed and provided meaning.
I continue to read The Denial of Death by Becker and he is very slowly providing me with insight into why we flee from personal inquiry of unconscious habits and behaviors, sheer terror at facing the truth of our fragile selves. No wonder that in the change management game the failure rate of change projects and efforts remains stable at 70-80%. We can negotiate logically with the business case for change however I suggest that we are still having a hard time getting to the core drivers that remain unspoken and hidden beneath the water.
