In my Turnaround Leadership class, we have been learning about ways to influence and enact change within our organization. The Heath brothers’ books–Made to Stick and Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard–are now both on my To Read List. Unfortunately, I don’t think that I’ll be able to read both books in its entirety while still working on my dissertation. #sigh #toomanybooksnotenoughtime
However, that’s not say that I haven’t already gleaned some important concepts that are applicable in my position at my school. I like that the Heath brothers made the concepts so simple to remember:
- Direct the Rider
- Motivate the Elephant
- Shape the Path
The video included in this post gives a great synopsis of how to approach change in any organization. I definitely need to keep these concepts not only in my backpocket, but forefront in my mind.
