Everything I Learned About Change, I Learned From Rocky Balboa.

By film number VI, Rocky Balboa made have had some brain damage, but boy can he deliver a punch(line). I go back to this video extract (minus the intro-outro titles) at least once a year – it is the best piece of advice about working on change I have heard.

Let me tell you something you already know… It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward…You gotta be prepared to take the hits.

Sometimes, when we talk about change, about the future of work, about embedding social inside the enterprise etc. we can get bogged down in theory and self-importance. Sharing a bit of Rocky is a good way to talk about the work at hand more emotionally – it brings levity with it.
