Be The Change You Want To See

Hi Sheri,
This one is for you and all the other people who want to see change.
Find like minded people in you workplace and come together to discuss how to change the small things.
The best way is to lead by example and after a while others will get on board.
Please see this video called the LONE NUT, it always inspires me.
