The international bestseller—now with a new preface by the author.

Millions worldwide have read and embraced John Kotters ideas on change management and leadership. Leading Change is widely recognized as his seminal work on leading transformational change, and is an important precursor to his newer ideas on acceleration: effectively managing operations while seizing new opportunity.

Needed more today than at any time in the past, this immensely relevant book serves as both a visionary guide and a practical toolkit on how to approach the difficult yet crucial work of leading change in any type of organization.

Freshly designed and with new commentary by John Kotter, Leading Change is a true leadership classic.

Synopsis:

An insightful guide that shows how habits of behavior are formed, and how we can transform bad habits into positive behaviors in ourselves and others.

Smart Change explores the psychological mechanisms that form and maintain habits in individuals and groups and offers real, accessible and actionable advice for changing habits. In an engaging narrative, Markman covers a wide range of habits, from individual behaviors like eating better and exercising regularly to work-related behaviors such as learning effectively and influencing customers purchases. He proposes that there are five effective tools to help individuals change behavior and to help people influence the habits of the people around them:

1. Tame the “Go” system: Identify the triggers of habits, replace old behaviors with new ones and generate specific plans to deal with obstacles.

2. Harness the “Stop” system: Learn to deal with stress and other factors that hinder the development of new and positive habits.

3. Optimize your goals. Determine the course of behavior change and how to successfully incorporate those changes for the long term.

4. Manage your environment: Change your surroundings to dramatically reduce poor behavior and habits.

5. Engage your Neighbors: To affect other peoples behavior, understand the shared culture that creates a mutual dependency, and allows neighbors and colleagues to have a profound positive influence on the behavior of other members of their community.
