Have you ever noticed a glaring issue, a problem just begging to be resolved, a change just asking to be made—and no one else seems to notice? And it seems like such a monumental concern that it is hard to believe no one is doing anything about it.
It makes you stop and wonder: Are we even on the same campus?
The problem is that there are a lot of problems. We can’t solve them all, so it’s easy to throw up our hands at any and all of them. Change is hard. Why bother?
Yet when a nagging issue keeps you up at night and you decide to tackle it, you don’t have to give in to the apathy all around you. But you do have to do a little legwork.
Before you can really tackle the problem you want to solve, you have to demonstrate that it is a problem that you have to solve right now. Then you have to convince the right group of people to join you in resolving it.
You can learn how to build your case and build your team in How Can I Create a Sense of Urgency for Change?
