MM3: How to change things when change is hard

How do you change things when change is hard?

First, you should read Switch, by Chip and Dan Heath …

Or if you’re strapped for time, listen to my Mini-Monday episode that focuses on this topic.


According to the Heath Bros change centers on 3 elements:

  1. Rider (logic)
  2. Elephant (emotion)
  3. Path (necessary steps for change)

Leaders need to be aware of each of these 3 elements to effectively instill change in their organization.

Make sure you listen to the entire episode for a few anecdotes and examples of what you can do in your school or district to more effectively be a change agent.
