The first requirement for making change is an awareness that something needs to change, that something is wrong, and that something could be better. This awareness is the spark that brings attention to the problem.
The event, or person who creates awareness often gets a lot of attention for creating that awareness.
The person who is willing to own the outcome and lead the change is the critical element in making change. Without stepping up and taking responsibility, change doesn’t happen. Without the leader of change stepping up and accepting responsibility, all you have is awareness of the problems that exist. This awareness is crucial, but on its own, it doesn’t fix anything.
