Re: Change
@elizabeth: I would have to say true and not so true in all cases. In general any change surely brings some anxiety to every one. How it gets communicated clearly outlining what, why and how by leadership plays very key role on how it will be received. However there are some that really have tough time accepting, no matter what. I have come across such people personally and witnessed just quitting because of unwillingness to accept and learn more about it. So it depends on how you get to perceive.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@elizabeth: Wow, that sounds inspirational - hard work, failure, growth. Unless we start thinking that failure is a perfect opportunity to learn we can not expect growth or positive result. One has to be ready to accept failure and move on. We all know and heard about several prominent leaders on how they reached to that point of success.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
ms.akkineni - I would think that risk taking is typically seen as one of the most lauded qualities a person can have in our society. And I suppose it's a good quality. It tends to be risk taking that has the possibility of bringing on the most progress as a whole. There is a picture hanging up in the art room of the school my son will be going to next year. The picture shows an iceberg. You see the top of the iceberg out of the ocean and it is labeled as "success." And then the part of the iceberg under the ocean is labeled "Hard work, failure, growth." All people see is the part of the iceberg that is above the ocean, and no one sees all of the hard work, failure and growth that goes into your success. I absolutely love the picture.

Change
Michel said she's gotten zero push back on wanting to change or on the value proposition of changing, but a lot of pushback on how to change. 

My guess is, this is typically where most people have issues with completing change. Because the idea of change, is generally an appealing idea. (Even if we tend to resist it.) Change still gets a pretty positive spin more often than not. It's trying to get people to agree on how to change that is going to bring up the most issue.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
Absolutely, being aware of what's coming and to be ready with a response plan is the best and least possible thing that we can do. I will check the other link you shared to get better insight, thank you.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
The fact it is coming is something we have to think through no doubt.    How we respond is up to us--right?

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
Risk taking is one common desired quality that is noticed across c-level executives and enterpreneurs. Not only risk, one should be ready to deal with potential damage if needed. It is ot practical to expect 100% success in very first or every attempt. So one must be ready to face. I don't eamn to say that will happen in all cases, but there is a chance.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@mp:

I hear you and also know why the thought of automating 911 / 111 is scary. But more than scary, i would question if that is practical? It can't be automated 100%. May be the first level till the call gets detected and routed to concerned department needed like police, medical assistance, fire etc.,. Post that some personal interaction is mandatory if the idea is to provide right help when needed in emergency.

Might I even add to that - you need someone with narcissistic personality disorder. Seriously.
