John Kotter Explains His 8-Step Process of Change In Our New Release

John Kotter on Change and Leadership

Recently, Dini and I sat down with John Kotter in his office with a video crew. We asked him if he could outline his eight-step process of change. We thought it would be a great supplement to the videos we distribute featuring John.

Well, the results were fantastic! We have put this material on a new DVD release. Our name for the program is "Transform Your Organization!" In a way, we see this as a video workbook. It’s filled with practical advice and tips for any manager, team leader, or executive who is involved with organizational change.

The video workbook is laid out simply. John introduces his eight-step model for change in the first video clip. He then outlines each of the eight steps of change in the following eight clips. With each step, he provides tips for implementation (and also ideas for avoiding pitfalls). On the DVD, you can view the entire program or choose any one of the video clips to watch on its own.

We priced this inexpensively so any manager, team leader, or executive can get it as a personal reference tool. You can learn more at our website. You can also see a preview of "Step 1: Increase Urgency" there, too.

Tom Peters New Book: The Little BIG Things!

The LIttle BIG Things by Tom Peters

More great book news! Tom Peters book "The Little BIG Things: 163 Ways To Pursue Excellence" is now available. As many of you know, Tom Peters has been consolidating a lot of his best ideas into "Success Tips" for his blog. These tips distill so many of the ideas that Tom has developed through his practice.

After accumulating hundreds of these ideas (over several years), Tom decided to aggregate the best of these into a book. In it, you will find ideas for improved customer service and leadership. Tom also shares ideas on innovation, excellence, and organizational strategy. I particularly like Tom’s advice on improving your communication abilities, and honing your leadership skills.

These are 163 great ideas... and they are motivational, insightful, fun to read, and eminently useable (and, for that matter, sensible). If you’re interested in Tom’s new book, click here to see the link on Amazon.com.

As many of you already know, Tom has also put a lot of these great ideas into a training video series. We shot over 90 of Tom’s "Little BIG Things" over three fun and fascinating days. I confess that we spent as much time chatting and laughing as we did shooting Tom’s segments. Free previews are available here: The Little BIG Things DVD series.

Now you can get A "Kick In Your Attitude" in print!

A Kick In The Attitude by Sam Glenn

Sam Glenn has just released a book called "A Kick In The Attitude," which is published by Wiley. Many of you know Sam from his hysterical video series (which includes the program "A Kick in The Attitude." Now, Sam has put his philosophy in print!

Sam’s book is filled with his usual great stories as well as lots of wonderful advice and tips for getting - and keeping - a great attitude. I am always drawn to his customer service stories, and Sam’s book is filled with them. But as I was reading Sam’s book, one other topic caught my attention. It’s in Principle #17 (which is called "Attitude Is Like Chalk Dust - It Gets On Everything You Touch").

In this chapter, Sam has a section called "You Can’t Please Them All." In it he speaks about the challenge of delivering great customer service. Sometimes you really can’t please everyone. For example, if your customers are rude to your people, then maybe you can’t please them and you have to move on. This is hard advice, but I also think it is great advice. Herb Kelleher was also a fan of this philosophy. In my interview with Herb, he said that at Southwest their philosophy was to put employees first. Herb thought that if the employees were happy, then the customers will be well served and the shareholders will reap the benefits. It’s great advice!

Give Sam’s book a try! It’s a fun read! Click here to see more on www.amazon.com. You can also see a preview of Sam’s video "A Kick In The Attitude."
