Friday’s Change Reflection Quote Leadership of Change® Be the Change You Want for Your Organisation

"Modelling the new way of working is the one key task leaders of change do not need props for, nor can they delegate"

👏 Happy Friday!


On this day, March 3, 1939, Mahatma Gandhi began a fast in Mumbai to protest against autocratic rule in India. The fast ended four days later, when the dispute was referred to the Chief Justice of India. Gandhi was the leader who applied the principles of the nonviolent civil disobedience campaign against the British rule in India. He was often imprisoned for his actions, sometimes for years, but he accomplished his aim in 1947, when India gained its independence.

Mahatma Gandhi devoted his life as a servant leader to ending racism, violence against the oppressed, and colonial rule in India. He was a visionary leader and became one of the major political leaders of his time. He was determined, resilient, and focused, especially in the face of seemingly overwhelming opposition. He has been a source of inspiration and a role-model not only for everyday people, but also for other leaders, such as Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King. Albert Einstein commented on Mahatma Gandhi, “Generations to come will scarcely believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.” According to Mahatma Gandhi, “You must be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Leaders being the change they want to see is also very true in organisational change. Be the Change You want for Your Organisation.

👉 Leaders need to model the new way, especially the new skills and behaviours. Just as a model can inspire us to dress or look a certain way, a leader of change can inspire their employees to imitate their good behaviour. The leaders of the organisation have to be someone the employees look up to and want to emulate during change implementation. Employees will listen to what leaders say and do. They will always be looking for alignment or gaps. If there is alignment, employees will gravitate towards the leader and emulate their behaviour.


Have a fantastic weekend with the ones you love and care for, enjoy some fresh air, exercise, eat, drink and be happy.
