“We have great plans, but consistently fail to implement them.”
“Oh, we tried that already and it didn’t work.”
“We can’t get our community to agree on anything, other than maintaining the status quo.”
“We are slowly dying; few will admit it and even fewer feel they can do anything about it.”
We hear these words from far too many leaders of rural economies. Often, at the heart of a distressed rural economy is a deep-seated belief that there is nothing they can do about their situation. Pervasive disempowerment can manifest itself in different ways, including:
- An entitlement mentality
- Youth brain drain
- Resistance to change that may even involve actively impeding entrepreneurial efforts
ViTAL Economy (VE) is familiar with these core obstacles and has incorporated Change Management tools and processes to help overcome them. We teach regional leaders how to make complex change succeed in their region, and we help deploy change-management tactics that kick-start and sustain the VE Journey.
