This is a great blog from a fellow Scouter who really knows his stuff. I am re-sharing it here. It’s a very good read. You can apply the ideas to your own work and life even if your not in Scouting.

Change is something that all of us must deal with in our lives. As leaders, not only must we deal with change, but sometimes we need to be `change agents’, bringing about change in our organizations. Change can be something that is looked forward to. Change can be something that is feared and avoided. We need to understand how to handle change and how to manage it.
A great quote from Einstein that is appropriate here: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.” What is needed is a change in what you do to get the results you want. If your group is stuck in a rut, keep that in mind.
