Most books on change are aimed either at managers leading change or at consultants who will be facilitating it. This book is different. It is written specifically for the individuals who will be involved or impacted by the change. While change is inevitable, the people affected can have so much to give and so much to gain with a more active involvement in the change. The aim of this pocket guide is to help the affected individuals understand more about change and to enable them to become actively involved.
Instead of prescribing a defined methodology, this book offers a wide range of tools and techniques, 43 in total, that are designed as a toolbox into which the reader can dip at different stages of the change process they are experiencing; when the change is first announced, when the change is starting up, during the main body of the change, and as the change is coming to completion. These practical tools and techniques are described using consistent “Why should I do this?”, “What should I do?”, and “How would I do this?” sub-sections with worked examples to help the reader quickly understand the tools and successfully apply them.
Change starts inside ourselves, with an acceptance that it is real and necessary, and a determination to make a positive difference. This pocket guide will help make sense of how you and others feel about the change and give you structured ways to understand how change happens and what you can do to help it (and yourself, and others) succeed. So make an eyes-open, positive choice to get involved and get out there. Be positive. Jump in. Read the book. Read it again. Keep coming back to it. And very soon you will be keeping up with the best.
