What we will cover in this

• Planning for change

Change is…
…at best
• Annoying
• Inconvenient
• A force for improvement
…at worst
• Paralyzing
• Devastating
• A force for deteriorating performance
Hope in Action…ending poverty through systemic change
14
Success is not Guaranteed
60-90% of all organizational
change efforts fail!

15
Are we naturally resistant to change?
“If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a
thing, you’re right.”
Henry Ford
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the
only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead

A Simple Change Example
• When did you last change cell phones?
• Why did you change?
• How did that go?
• Don’t confuse resistance to change with old habits

Applying the Principles of Change
in the Society
• Members are more accepting when they see the
benefits of the vision
• When leaders show patience, trust in the plan
increases and change begins
• Being able to adapt the vision to the
Council/Conference situation insures a more
lasting change
Hope in Action…ending poverty through systemic change
19
Making a Change Plan
•
•
•
•
•
•
What is your final goal?
Who does this change impact?
Which obstacles need to be overcome to reach
your goal? Use a Force Field Analysis
Which of these should be overcome first?
Which steps should be taken after that and what
results can you expect?
When will a “lessons learned” analysis be
available?

25
Tools to Lead Change: Reinforcement

Hope in Action…ending poverty through systemic change
26
Symptoms of Resistance
•
•
•
•
Absenteeism from meetings
Late / incomplete assignments
Incessant questioning
“That won’t work here. We are different than…..”
"If you look at the whole system, you realize the barriers are in our minds.
What moves that forward is a willingness to change behaviors and come
together to collaborate on win/win solutions.“
Sarah Severn, Nike
Hope in Action…ending poverty through systemic change
27
Dealing With Resistance
• Capture & respond to “reasonable” concerns
• Repeat the vision
• Tell stories of local successes and celebrate them!
• Communicate…Communicate….Communicate!!
• Provide the tools for success
• Training should be specific to their role in the vision
• Hold people accountable for design and execution of
their implementation plan
• They must have ownership!
“If the representatives from any part of the system enter discussions feeling they are not valued, that
decisions have already been made, or that they may lose from the negotiations, then it is likely that
little progress can be made.”
28
