“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom”. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
On Monday, in the United States, we celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day while simultaneously swearing into office, for a second term, the first ever African-American president. In honor of Dr. King, this week’s tip is to engage in conversations for change.
Dr. King was a visionary, someone who dreamed about the world becoming very different than it was. His ability to create change came from his courage to be honest and engage in conversations that were confrontational, authentic, and hopeful.
This week honor Dr. King by engaging in conversations that are both reflective and help to spur change. To quote Fierce founder Susan Scott: While no single conversation is guaranteed to change the trajectory of a career, a business, a marriage, or a life, any single conversation can.
