Radical Change, The Quiet Way

Just read this, and I like:

[The best culture-changers] bear no banners; they sound no trumpets. Their ends are sweeping, but their means are mundane. They are firm in their commitments, yet flexible in the ways they fulfil them. Their actions may be small but can spread like a virus. They yearn for rapid change but trust in patience. They often work individually but pull people together. Instead of stridently pressing their agenda, they start conversations. Rather than battling powerful foes, they seek powerful friends. And in the face of setbacks they keep going. (Debra Meyerson, “Radical Change, the Quiet Way,” Harvard Business Review, 2002)
