Go Into the Unknown

Updated: Sep 25, 2020

While reading about change management recently, I couldn’t help but think of my daughter’s favorite Frozen song in my head, “Into the Unknown.” At the beginning of this song, Elsa is ignoring a “voice” that is calling her to do something, but she refuses to hear it and sings through why she is choosing to ignore the voice – she doesn’t need something new, she’s afraid of the risk of following it, etc. By the end of the song, Elsa is ready to follow the voice and go “into the unknown.” For leaders, or Disney princesses like Elsa, the status quo may be more dangerous than the unknown.

When evaluating a potential change, people tend to get paralyzed by the negative possibilities and focus on all the reasons why the change shouldn’t happen – which can delay the change from happening or even ever happening. While the change may seem scary, what can happen if you stay with the status quo may be even scarier! Elsa gave into the voice and ended up saving her entire kingdom.
