In today's fast-paced, globalized world, organizations need to embrace change in order to thrive. Organizational leaders have responsibility for the enterprise's success as well as choosing and implementing needed changes. It is unrealistic to ask those leaders to have the process knowledge, required time, or practiced skills required to navigate the complexities of the change process by themselves.
Facilitating Effective Change makes the case that meeting these challenges requires having a change facilitator within your organization. Through influential leadership and a solid understanding of change management, a facilitator can ensure that the path for change is clear, well communicated, and sustained. Uniquely positioned to reflect and observe, a facilitator advises leaders on strategy and analyzes progress.
Speaking from experience, the authors' main focus is how to make facilitation more effective. After discussing the power of leading through influence, they identify barriers to change, as well as the various methods facilitators and organizations can successfully use to adapt and move forward.
