Why do as many as 75% of change initiatives fail? We live in an era where constant change is the norm rather than the exception. Given globalization, increased competition, and constant technological turnover, no organization can run in place: change is not optional. However, the sad fact is that the vast majority of change efforts fail. As authors Gregory P. Shea and Cassie A. Solomon argue, they do not fail for a lack of trying or leadership. Chances are you have led or been part of a failed change. But why did it fail and how can the next change be successfully implemented? In this essential guide, authors Gregory P. Shea and Cassie A. Solomon deal with the real reasons change efforts fail—and how that failure can be avoided. They argue that change—real change—means changes in behavior and that the work environment itself is the greatest obstacle to making behavioral change stick. They reveal a tested method for leading successful change, which they have developed over a combined 50 years of helping organizations do just that. In Leading Successful Change, they share the 2 tenets for making successful change; how to create a scene that will provide a vision of the future; the 8 Levers of Change, a tried-and-true method for designing the work environment to support the changes; and how winning companies—from IKEA to a hospital near you—are successfully implementing change. Change is not optional and it is difficult—but it is also not impossible. Shea and Solomon present a thorough, well-researched explanation of how to make change work.

What's the worst thing you can hear when you have a good idea at work? "That's not how we do it here!" In their iconic bestseller Our Iceberg Is Melting, John Kotter and Holger Rathgeber used a simple fable about penguins to explain the process of lead�ing people through major changes. Now, ten years later, they're back with another must-read story that will help any team or organization cope with their biggest challenges and turn them into exciting opportunities. Once upon a time a clan of meerkats lived in the Kalahari, a region in southern Africa. After years of steady growth, a drought has sharply reduced the clan's resources, and deadly vulture attacks have increased. As things keep getting worse, the har�mony of the clan is shattered. The executive team quarrels about possible solutions, and sugges�tions from frontline workers face a soul-crushing response: "That's not how we do it here!" So Nadia, a bright and adventurous meerkat, hits the road in search of new ideas to help her trou�bled clan. She discovers a much smaller group that operates very differently, with much more teamwork and agility. These meerkats have developed innova�tive solutions to find food and evade the vultures. But not everything in this small clan is as perfect as it seems at first. Can Nadia figure out how to combine the best of both worlds--a large, disciplined, well-managed clan and a small, informal, inspiring clan--before it's too late? This book distills Kotter's decades of experi�ence and award-winning research to reveal why organizations rise and fall, and how they can rise again in the face of adversity.
