Change with John Kotter

Incremental improvement is no longer sufficient in helping organizations navigate the complexity, uncertainty, and volatility of today’s world.  Our guest today explores how to create non-linear, dramatic change in organizations. He explores the emerging science of change that teaches us about how to build organizations – from businesses to governments – that change and adapt rapidly.   It is great pleasure to welcome the author of “Change: How Organizations Achieve Hard-to-Imagine Results in Uncertain and Volatile Times”, John Kotter.

To exacerbate the situation, guardians of the status quo will often ostracise, obstruct and even “gaslight” the changemaker.
