We can’t all be change agents

Around 16% of people in an organisation are change agents. About 50% of people are late adopters or laggards.

Similarly, around 13% of employees are engaged contributers in the workplace:

All the rest are compliant — disconnected from the purpose of their organisation, controlled by performance management and procedures, largely resistant to change.

An idle thought: though we’d all dearly love to be change agents and contributors, by definition, we can’t all be change agents; we can’t all be contributors.

Half the battle — actually, over 80% of the battle — may be recognising our place in the organisational picture.
