The second thing that I carry in my luggage is the idea of change. As you can imagine from how this blog is named, the need of change has crucially influenced my personal story and life lately.
Here I’m just reporting an index on how successfully leading change. Something I’ve learned from an excellent coach and from a masterpiece of this subject “Leading Change” from John P. Kotter.
“Change is the only constant” right? Everybody sooner or later will have to deal with it. Hope you get interested and you get to explore more this fascinating topic.
A successful change is a multistep process that pass through 8 steps:
[I] ESTABLISHING A SENSE OF URGENCY
[II] CREATING THE GUIDING COALITION
[III] DEVELOPING A VISION AND STRATEGY
[IV] COMMUNICATING THE CHANGE VISION
[V] EMPOWERING FOR BROAD-BASE ACTION
[VI] GENERATING SHORT TERM WINS
[VII] CONSOLIDATING GAINS AND PRODUCING MORE CHANGE
[VIII] ANCHORING NEW APPROACHES IN THE CULTURE
Which one I love the most? Number 3:
“Developing a good vision is an exercise of both the head and the hearth, not just a strategy exercise. “
Now it is time to get head and hearth going at the same pace!
