Leading Change

  • Leading Change

    By John Kotter

    Kotter demystifies the change process with a clear eight-step model. A sense of urgency, a strong guiding coalition and a compelling vision accompany every successful change effort. Kotter describes how to get there in a straight-forward, jargon-free manner. Compelling vision accompanies every successful change effort.
  • Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change

    By William Bridges

    Bridges’ work is a great companion to Kotter in that he examines the human response to change. He details why putting a change in place doesn’t simply create something new…it ends the old way. It is through the transition to the new way of doing things that organizations both struggle and grow. Leaders must learn to manage these transitions to make change effective.
  • Beyond the Wall of Resistance

    By Rick Maurer

    It’s not resistance that dooms most change efforts; it’s management’s response to the resistance. Maurer identifies how to use resistance as a positive force for change. His clear five-step model for getting beyond resistance and building support for change can help leaders effectively (and fearlessly) address resistance and use it to accelerate change.
