Book on Handling Change
Wednesday, March 12, 2014
Lots to catch up on at work today, had it under control by 3. I felt really slow mid-afternoon, but otherwise pretty good. For the first time, I got rained out; no walk, so I read a homework book.
Highly recommend for anyone in an organization undergoing change: "Our Iceberg Is Melting: Changing and Succeeding Under Any Conditions" by John Kotter of Harvard Business School, author of "Leading Change" and "The Heart of Change." Told as an allegory involving a penguin colony whose iceberg is discovered to be melting necessitating some unwelcome and dramatic changes. Illustrates the path to successful change and how various types of people--penguins?--react.
