Leaders, leadership, and change

Change can be a difficult animal to wrestle with. Most of us perceive change as resulting in some kind of loss on our part: loss of influence, or authority, or control, or maybe just the loss of being comfortable with a stable situation. People don’t resist change, we resist what we think change will cost us. It’s one of the reasons we need leaders. Leadership is relational, messy, often volatile, and absolutely essential. (italics mine)
