A study conducted by The Ken Blanchard Companies in 2008 paints a telling story about the challenges organizations are facing that demand effective change leadership. Without effective change leadership these challenges are disruptive at best, and more likely miserable failures. In order to be successful, leaders must understand the reasons why most change efforts fail.
Mastering the art of leading change does not need to be mysterious or complicated. By teaching leaders how to address the stages of concern and respond with strategies to increase involvement and influence at each stage of the change process, and build the capacity for future change, organizations can dramatically increase the probability of successfully initiating, implementing, and sustaining change.
