Keep your eyes on the future and embrace change

Last night I was audience to a fantastic presentation by Steve Prentice on social media and its integration in business and health.

One of the ideas he spoke about was the importance for leaders not be afraid of the future. We can’t stick to our old ways just because we are afraid to embrace changes in the world around us. If the old way really is better, then of course, keep it. But it’s a mistake to not be open minded and see opportunity in change and being willing to explore them. Finding new opportunity in change and embracing it earlier means finding new areas of growth for a business or organization. If you want to stay ahead, you have to keep up with the new opportunities that change brings.

I’m way behind in the game, but I finally give in to you LinkedIn, you win!
