The following selection contains a short and assertive summary of the reality of change in the workplace. In short, Pennington says when we accept change we make the choice between survival and extinction. Given that, what can we do to make sure that we successfully adapt to that change? He makes the comparison between the dodo and the coyote. It is worth paying attention to the list of characteristics he attributes to the coyote and considering how they may enable it to thrive and deal with change.
