Some great advice… all it takes is great leadership.
Harvard Business School Professor John Kotter. Kotter describes a series of eight steps which he recommends all significant change initiatives to follow:
- Build a sense of urgency
- Establish an effective guiding coalition
- Create a clear, appealing vision
- Communicate, communicate, communicate
- Remove obstacles (“empower”)
- Celebrate small wins
- Follow through with wave after wave of change
- Embed the change at the cultural level.
