John Michel's curator insight, March 24, 2014 2:30 PM

Change management is no longer a term that denotes only operational improvements, cost efficiencies and process reengineering.    Change management has become a much bigger, more interwoven part of the overall business fabric – an embedded leadership requirement that plays into everything that we do, every day, and how we go about getting things done, regardless of hierarchy or rank.   In the end, every leader must be a change agent.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, March 24, 2014 7:41 PM

Neglecting Your Shadow Could be Your Demise | Switch and Shift

Neglecting Your Shadow Could be Your Demise | Switch and Shift | french american | Scoop.it
All of us are prone to believing our own legend—and each of us must be aware of the shadow we cast. Carl Jung described the concept of The Persona and The Shadow—our public face (show) versus the portion of ourselves we wish to hide. Just as we see when we stand close to the fire, the further we move away from the light—the longer our shadow becomes. Self-Awareness is the fire of knowledge which burns brightly in all of us. As we let our ego drive us further away from the fire, our shadow lengthens accordingly.
