Top of Mind Thursday November 6, 2014: Change is in the Air

Top of Mind Thursday
Republicans clearly trounced their Democratic rivals in Tuesday’s election, putting both houses of Congress in Republican hands. This means we should be expecting significant change in Washington, right?

Leverage2Market LogoWell, not exactly. Historically, between 80 and 96% of incumbents are re-elected to Congress each term. That means that even though there will be some changes with a new party in charge, for the most part,  we’ve returned the usual suspects to office.

Two weeks ago, Democratic political pundit James Carville told me no one individual can come to town and dramatically change Washington. Unfortunately, President Obama learned this the hard way.

Rather than wait for Washington to lead the way, wouldn’t it make more sense for our businesses and organizations to take steps to change themselves?

I suspect, however, that in a short time, we’ll see this dance play out again, and  again…unless something dramatically changes.
