Is the process you would use to change something in your personal life the same as what you would do in your professional life?
Do you even have a process for one or both?
We all encounter change, either initiated by ourselves or more often thrust upon us by outside forces. How (do) you deal with that?
Do you consider yourself to generally be reactive or proactive when it comes to change?
I asked these questions and more of 517 adults between the ages of 18 and 70 as part of four years of research I've completed to date regarding change. There is still more to learn and I look forward to your reaction.
Closing Statement from Bill Matthies
Back from my trip and this was the first opportunity I've had to check back into TED. In doing so I see there was an opportunity to provide closure on the discussion, specifically answering the question "Was the question effectively answered?" (TED's suggested closure.)
Those of you who followed this conversation know there wasn't one question but rather many including some diversions as we discussed many things I hadn't anticipated. I did get input I wanted but more than that, I benefited from the discussion "drift" and see that as being at least if not more important than what I originally expected.
Once again, thanks to all of you for your time and input.
