Common myths regarding change include "The Fortune Teller Myth" (the idea that leaders know exactly what will happen as a result of change initiatives, "The Super Hero Myth" (the expectation that the leader can lead followers to a promised land of safety and abundance), and "The Mechanic Myth" (the attempt to address change issues by focusing on one small problem at a time, independently of others). This presentation helps dispel such myths and addresses the very real uncertainties, losses, and conflicts resulting from changing conditions. Topics such as adaptive leadership, systems thinking, and connections between leadership and biology are further explored.
