This podcast discusses how difficult it can be work and exist in an environment of people that aren’t like-minded. Many of us want to include others in our enthusiasm and pride for our job, and it is not easy to do that.
We have to be realistic in how we gather support and conversion, if you will, of others that not only are like-minded; those are the easy converts. But, rather the conversion of those that are on the fence or non-committal either way.
If we work real hard, are patient and understand the dynamics involved, we can bring along those that were adversarial.
Pick them off one at a time like a sniper. Don’t try to move the whole group or change the entire organization at once. One at a time works, but still takes time, but it works.
