The first is an article, 5 Most Effective Ways to Sell Change by Glenn Llopis posted on Forbes.com. In this piece Glenn argues that it won’t be long before being able to innovate and manage change will be a part of every job description. As most of you know, I am of the belief that both ideas already should be a part of every employees job description and, more directly change leadership and change management are in fact one of two fundamental management roles. (The other, for those interested, is my belief that the fundamental purpose of managers in todays workplace is to create the environment and conditions that allow people to perform at their maximum level.)
The five pieces Glenn discusses include Awareness, Timing, Competency and Know How, Desire and Mental Toughness. Read the full article here and it is well worth a quick read.
