Woe awaits those unwilling to change
If people and organizations are always in the state of becoming, i.e., journeying towards flourishing, then it is only appropriate that we accept and facilitate change.
However, there is a degree of convenience and comfort to be found in routines and fixed activities. It is inconvenient and discomforting to look at ourselves in the mirror and identify our weaknesses and our sins. Thus, it is tempting to postpone, to procrastinate, to escape the call to fix ourselves or the systems we are part of.
This may be provide relief in the short term, but soon after, our faces will be splashed with cold water; waking us up from our escapism, forcing us to realize that resisting change and repentance left us stunted. Woeful.
As we have learned from the principles of action research for transformations, the manager’s calling to is help change happen. That journey could be messy and frustrating.
But it will not be woeful.
Matthew 11:20-24. Woe to you
