How do we become social and connected? As a business or a person, is it just a process? Are stories and collective wisdom enough to make us change?
Is there more to it than following a process? Is it like any other change – going through cycles of fear and distrust before deciding it’s for us?
When you gain social, you have to let a bit of your ‘old self’ go. You need the space to grieve.
If we are going to make a change we need to be compelled and find the support of others around us before building new competencies and making a sustainable change.
Where are you right now on the Grief Cycle of Social?
