Change and the 2 questions

When organizations go through change, it is natural to ask 2 kinds of questions –

(1) How can I survive/come out ahead? (self-preservation)

(2) How can we survive/come out of ahead? (team/organization-preservation)

Both questions matter. However, the difference between a reaction and a professional response in healthy organizations is consistently choosing the “we” over the “I.”

The difference always shows.
