Uhh... Where do I begin?

 may 2013 image newsletterDoes your organization need to make a sizable change? Imagine FAILURE. You don't have to. There's a 70% chance you will!*

 

 

John Kotter's 8 Steps, and you won't! (Probably!)

  1. "Aim for the heart"- Inspire employees to see value in the change.
  2. Build your dream team - Bring together an influential group to lead change.
  3. Lay out the future - Create a flexible vision that guides action.
  4. "Walk the talk" - Set an example by living and breathing the vision.
  5. Remove hurdles - Provide all tools and resources needed to foster change.
  6. Celebrate! - Recognize improvements along the way.
  7. Stay calm and carry on - Don't lose momentum.
  8. Shift your culture - Accurately represent your future vision.

Following Kotter's 8 step process is not a guarantee to successful change. However, it's a great checklist to follow along the way. It's important to recognize that making changes is going to be more complicated than expected. A plan of action is necessary, and thinking through this process will make a difference.
