Friday’s Change Reflection Quote - Leadership of Change® - Change Starts With Audacious Goals

Apollo 11 Moon Landing

"Behind great change and achievement, you will find proactivity, determination, inspiration, motivation, audacious goals, tenacity, continuous learning, effective project management, communication clarity, collaboration, and teamwork"

👏 Happy Friday!


On this day, July 21st, 1969, at 02:56 UTC, Commander Neil Armstrong became the first person to step onto the Moon’s surface. The Apollo Lunar Module Eagle landed six hours and 39 minutes earlier and was also carrying Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. An estimated 650 million people watched Armstrong’s televised image as history unfolded. Armstrong's first step onto the Moon’s surface was not just a scientific milestone; it was a testament to the human spirit’s boundless potential. From the visionary leadership at NASA to the dedication of countless engineers, scientists, and astronauts, this achievement symbolizes the heights that humanity can reach when we unite in pursuit of a common goal. It was the culmination of years of meticulous planning, countless hours of hard work, and unwavering belief in the pursuit of the seemingly impossible. The moon landing stands as a symbol of what can be accomplished when audacious goals are set.

✅ Armstrong’s words, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind,” are etched in humanity’s collective memory forever more. This was the realisation of an audacious goal set by President John F. Kennedy when he boldly proclaimed in 1961 that the United States would send a man to the Moon and return him safely to Earth before the end of the decade. With the business landscape constantly evolving, driven by technological advancements, changing consumer preferences, and global challenges, organisations and their leaders will have to set audacious change goals over the next decade if they are to be successful or even survive. Leaders of organisations that are not effective and proactive change leaders risk becoming stagnant and outdated. It starts with an audacious change goal but includes a plethora of other integrated delivery enablers. Change Starts With Audacious Goals.


"Behind great change and achievement, you will find proactivity, determination, inspiration, motivation, audacious goals, tenacity, continuous learning, effective project management, communication clarity, collaboration, and teamwork"


👉 Time has run out for organisational leaders who focus on normal day-to-day operations, handing off change management and implementation responsibilities to available employees or consultants. Leading practice organisational change leadership skills and knowledge are significant differentiators for organisations, enabling them to stay ahead of the competition and thrive, not merely survive. Organisational change capability is not a tick-box function or department. Additionally, organisational change cannot be delivered in isolated sticky note workshops. It is imperative that organisations understand that change capability needs to go beyond touchy-feely skills, it involves strategy execution by delivering complex, innovative programmes and projects. It means understanding that leaders of change work in a toxic working environment with narcissistic, powerful leaders who are aggressively averse to change because they have much to lose.


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