Trying to change the world can be dangerous

Trying to change the world (or at least the professional one)? It can be dangerous, as Julia Kirby writes in Harvard Business Review: It’s one thing to be the agent of change in an organization that realizes it needs it; it’s quite another when you’re the only one in the room convinced of that. Be sure people perceive any change as being done for them, not to them, or risk their wrath.
