067: Disruptions provoke renewal

by | Mar 20, 2020

The history of the world is a history of disruptions. We human beings like predictability that gives us a sense of safety. We like to know what’s going to happen next so we can prepare for it. Disruptions throw us into a state of panic as chaos swirls around us.

But disruptions provoke a necessary renewal of the status quo by throwing it into chaos to shake us out of our ruts. It’s in the middle of this disruptive chaos that things get interesting and we adapt in ways we might not have thought possible.

In this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, I discuss why disruption is necessary and healthy for our continued survival. I share some examples and offer a perspective that disruption provides renewal. And that’s a good thing.
