EP71: If you haven’t read Nick Usher’s second book Elemental Change: Making stuff happen with nothing stands still, now the right time. While it is written with a corporate workplace in mind it is applicable to all of us in a world of change. Interestingly while many say we don’t like change, just our desire for a better version of ourselves is a desire for change.
In this episode, workplace and change strategist Nick Usher shares his learnings from years of experience working with leaders and as a leader for change. Among other things, we discuss Stoicism, fatalism, perpetual beta and “day two” planning. He also offers us his well-informed view on the famed saying “Leaders are born not made”.
