Succeeding in transformational change is the word of the day. But it takes a game changer to lead transformational change.
And I believe there is a game changer in each of us. Not everyone nurtures and expresses the game changer inside, but everyone can make a game-changing contribution when the mindset is right.
People are game changers when their being, knowing, and doing lead to a way of bringing to life solutions that are simple, meaningful, transformational, relational, scalable, disruptive, and become the wellspring of new states of being, new products, services or solutions.
Don’t we all long to have more of such people around us? And who does not crave to sometimes have that magical effect on what matters?
The word game changer frightens most of the organizations, circle of friends or family members. And sometimes it frightens you. “Who am I to be so daring, bright and disruptive ?!”– there may be a little voice in your head. But, who are you not to?
Game changers are gifted people with hardwired personality traits that naturally put them apart and classify them as high performers and high potentials. But all of these traits can become useless if not nurtured, polished and crafted further through application. Unfolding the game-changing impact of high potentials is learnable through mindset calibration and relentless practice. The famous “war for talent” we hear in corporate rhetoric is largely about spotting, attracting, nurturing, and retaining this pool of high performing and high potential people.
