Episode #47 - Change Agents & Influencers

Welcome to Episode 47 of the Get in the G Zone podcast.

It’s MLK Day, so today we are going to explore gratitude for influencers and change agents. Look up the term “change agent” on the Google and you’re likely to first see a lot of discussion about an individual who creates change within an organization. That is certainly one interpretation of a change agent. However, I’m taking a broader approach to the term, viewing it more in terms of someone who is using their skills, confidence, power, relationships, and personal courage to make a positive difference in any avenue of life or corner of the world. There’s the key word – positive. Loads of influential people have made a difference, not all of them positive. Who do you think of when you consider the concept of positive agent of change?

My path to my role as an influencer resembles this:
