Introducing change into a community

"Not in my backyard" is a common call to action against the new. After all, new is scary, and new can mean pain and loss. As a leader your job gets far harder after you encounter this resistance. Some see this as necessary. But what if you could avoid it?

Are you able to knock on every door, and patiently explain your plan to every person? Chicago did this with a new bike lane in their densest part of downtown, and completed the project in record timie with near universal support from local businesses.

By all means, lead your way through resistance. Even better, find another path that avoids it entirely.
