“A lot of businesses would do a lot better if there was an assumed acceptance that change was good.”
“It’s spotting likeminded people in the organisation and gathering a critical mass with you. It’s about personality and charisma. People choose to follow a character.”

Jenny Burns on being a changemaker.

“You need to have a clarity of purpose and you need people to subscribe to that purpose.”

Jonathan Carrier on having a purpose.

“It’s unbearable. The problem is you can always see what the next thing is and you know you’re not there. You’re not ever there.”

Julia Groves on measuring success.
