Change This is a website designed to promote the dissemination of ideas. According to their manifesto:
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
1. ChangeThis releases manifestos. We share them with bloggers, with influential
readers and with our subscribers.
2. If the manifestos strike a chord, theyʼll spread. If you donʼt feel moved, donʼt
spread them. The bad ideas will just sit there. The good ones will move.
3. As the manifestos spread through our culture, theyʼll leave change in their
wake. Changed minds are rare but powerful. The hope is that if we change
enough minds, the project will be worth the effort
The reason I mention this is because I have a proposal being considered at the moment. It can be found here. It's about taking an active role in leadership. It's about taking action and leading by example. The idea is something that coalesced for me after years in the restaurant and hotel business. It's amazing how many people there are in management positions in the service industry that don't lead well and don't believe in themselves or the establishment that they represent. Fortunately the tide is turning and things are changing for the better. I believe that taking even the smallest actions can make a person feel better about his or herself and thereby make them a better leader. By taking action you give the people around you something concrete to believe in. I took action by writing a proposal. If you like what I've written please vote for it here. The top manifesto proposals from each month are then developed into actual manifestos and published on the site.
