When Your Team Reverts to the Old Strategy
by Amy Gallo, Harvard Business Review
An important overview of John Kotter’s change principles to:
1) Go slow,
2) Build consensus
3) And succeed.
This supports these lessons in my books: “Staying Power: Why people leave the church over change and what you can do about it” (2003) and “Preparing for change reaction: How to introduce change in your church” (2010).
In this very helpful overview by Gallo of Kotter’s work, you will learn how to create teamwork that prevents the team-killing rise of “choosers” and “choiceless doers.”
