Purchase Options/ Select

Succeeding  In  A Changing World  a video based workshop on John Kotters'  8 Step Process of Successful Change.  This is a very powerful workshop on change. During the film, John Kotter provides rich examples of companies that have succeeded by truly embracing change: Berkshire Hathaway, Southwest Airlines and Rockwell Collins and he also talks about companies who have not succeeded because they did not move fast enough such as Polaroid.

The 8 Step Process of Successful Change:

  1. Create a Sense of Urgency-help others see the need for change and the importance of acting immediately.
  2. Pull Together the Guiding Team-make sure there is a powerful group guiding the change-one with leadership skills, bias for action,credibility, communication, ability, authority and analytical skills
  3. Develop the Change Vision and Strategy-clarify how the future will be different from the past and how you can make that future a reality
  4. Communicate for Understanding and Buy-In-make sure as many others as possible understand and accept the vision and the strategy
  5. Empower Others To Act-remove as many barriers as possible so that those who want to make the vision a reality can do so
  6. Produce Short-Term Wins-create some visible, unambiguous successes as soon as possible
  7. Don't Let Up-press harder and faster after the first successes.  Be relentless with instituting change after change until the vision becomes a reality
  8. Create a New Culture-hold on to the new ways of behaving and make sure they succeed until they become a part of the very culture of the group.
