Around 16% of people in an organisation are change agents. About 50% of people are late adopters or laggards.
Similarly, around 13% of employees are engaged contributers in the workplace:
All the rest are compliant – disconnected from the purpose of their organisation, controlled by performance management and procedures, largely resistant to change.
An idle thought: though we’d all dearly love to be change agents and contributors, by definition, we can’t all be change agents; we can’t all be contributors.
Half the battle – actually, over 80% of the battle – may be recognising our place in the organisational picture.
