Change must be holistic and systemic; with its result being the pulling down of paradigms and establishment of new ways that enable the corporate vision to be achieved in a sustainable manner. Change must be endearing and capable of building institutions that not only replicate themselves across diverse spheres of the polity and endeavour , but grow and improve continually through different situations and times whilst gathering champions from among the citizens in its wake.

So before speaking of change, leaders have to see and communicate a vision, assemble a competent team of believers who can chart strategies and execute tactical plans towards achieving this vision and be the face of this change as champions displaying exemplary conduct.

Also, the citizens must see what’s in it for them, buy into and sustain the vision through their own day to day actions.

This is when change is complete.
