Business Booster #77: Diplomatic Assertiveness- 3: Lead a Revolution, Not a Rebellion

“Not only are bloggers suckers for the remarkable, so are the people who read blogs.” - Seth Godin


Booster Byte 77

Rebellions start and end with complaints and blame. Few decisions ever come out of rebellion—their mission is to overthrow. The organizers appear self-righteous and usually self-serving if the rebellion is designed to put them in control.

Revolution, on the other hand, inspires people to join in creating something new and better for the overall good. Revolution builds on the possibilities of hope. One thing to remember: Revolutions take longer than rebellions and coups. Take care about announcing start and finish dates for your revolution. If you don’t achieve them, people tend to lose faith.
