In our coaching clinics we often talk about change, as we are trying to talk many of our attending coaches into changing the way their teams are playing and training. We want teams to play “GMS Style.”
We quote John Locke: “New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common.”
John Maynard Keynes tells us one reason why change is hard: “The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping old ones.”
The blog from the Harvard Business Review makes some interesting points about change.
