One Year Later: Change is Still Constant

A year ago, when Covid-19 changed all of our lives in so many ways, Leading NOW’s CEO summed up how most of us were feeling with a quote from Greek philosopher, Heraclitus –– “Change is the only constant in life.”  Her blog post, Leadership at the pace of Global Change, kicked off a 6-part series on how to deal with change when things are volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA).  Below, we share a recap of the entire “change” series to help you keep up with the constantly changing world we live in.
