Going Where We’ve Not Been Before

October 5, 2015

The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
-Dan Millman

Do you get excited about going to a place you’ve never been before? Perhaps a little scared?

The adventurous few embrace the journey and are always up for the trip, while others are more cautious and need to be calmed by studying what they may see or speaking to others with experience. The largest group of people may be those who require even more information, support, and strong and skillful leaders to take them to a new place.

The 11-county Columbus Region is going where it’s never been before. The area is growing at an unprecedented rate and more than 111,000 net new jobs have been added in just five years.

Is your community entering unknown territory? Are your citizens, business leaders, elected officials and academic partners prepared for the journey? What leadership will be required to get there and succeed? Are you excited?
