Dear community, 

Once there lived several creatures along the bottom of a great river. Each creature in its own manner clung tightly to the twigs and rocks of the river bottom. Each creature had learned from birth that clinging tightly was their way of life and should resist the current. 

But one creature said at last, "I trust the current. It knows where it is going. I shall let go, and let the current take me where it will. By clinging, I shall die of boredom." The other creatures laughed and said, "Fool! Let go, and that current you trust will throw you across the rocks, and you will die quicker than boredom!" 

But the one who did not listen to them, took a deep breath did let go, and at once was tumbled and smashed by the current across the rocks. Yet, in time, as the creature refused to cling again, the current lifted him free from the bottom, and he was not bruised or hurt anymore. 

And the creatures downstream, to which he was a stranger, cried, "See, a miracle! A creature like ourselves, yet he flies! See our Saviour has come to save us all!" And the one carried in the current said, "I am not a Saviour. The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare let go. Our true work is this voyage, this adventure".

- Change of the “mind-set” of employees is the key to successful transformation
- Remaining  up-front and central, is important to initiate change of mind-set 
- Accept that there will be failures while making progress
