Courage for Change – A little Inspiration for Organizational Rebels

This article – originally in German Language on LinkedIn received already more than 9000 views, 400 likes and about 70 valuable comments and more than 1000 re-shares (yes I am a bit proud) Sebastian Kolberg kindly provided the translation here:

  • Why is change so difficult?
  • How can an organization meet the challenges of the digital age?
  • What can I contribute to this?

Why – because we are seeking answers – new answers, because things change and early adopters, evangelists and other passionate people are needed to open the doors to a better future. …sounds maybe like from a Hollywood movie, but sorry no – I love to change my world… and I love to see others doing that. Of course it does not mean to break the law – but using todays possibilities to do things in a new way.
