Ownership: The Key to Successful Change

In today's world, there's a growing demand for societal change. This necessitates leadership that goes beyond authority and embraces ownership. It's perplexing that these two concepts are still not fully intertwined.

Unfortunately, many leaders crave control but shy away from taking ownership. This manifests in various ways, such as:

  • Leading a change initiative without actively participating

  • Demanding tasks from others while avoiding them themselves

  • Claiming credit for successes while deflecting blame for failures

It's fascinating to witness the emergence of a political structure that grants power while minimizing accountability. In other words, political power, without skin in the game. Power without ownership is not only morally questionable but also fundamentally flawed in driving change.

Therefore, it's crucial to carefully consider ownership in every change we undertake. Let's embrace leadership that embodies both authority and ownership to foster genuine transformation.
