MBL Minute: The Resistance And Sheepdog Protection


Episode Notes


Our resistance to change has evolved over time as a means of ensuring our survival.  It is both personal and tribal in nature.  The anxiety we feel when we step outside of our comfort zone is fundamental barrier to innovation and change.  The development of our emotional intelligence is the solution that will enable us to move through our fear rather than being controlled by that fear.


Sheepdogs have a sense of personal responsibility to protect the herd by leading the sheep to safety and away from the wolves that want to feed off of them.  Executives need behave like sheepdogs leading their organizations away from the wolves seeking to devour them.  Organizational change always begin with individual change.  There is nothing that has a more profound impact on that success than the development of authentic leadership and emotional intelligence.
