The desire to make the world better is an age-old heroic impulse. Acting on this impulse takes one to profound places of self-knowledge and personal meaning.
Most change agents who begin this journey operate out of pure impulse with only their intuition to guide them. If their will is strong they persevere through the inevitable early discouragement, but often lower their expectation. Some begin resenting the people and culture in which they are trying to bring about change when they encounter resistance. And some give up and act without conviction. This doesn’t have to be the experience of facilitating change. It can be done successfully and elegantly. What is most often missing is the knowledge of how to design and facilitate a transformative change strategy.
