The New Change Equation


We change best when we are strongest.

The most commonly held formula for managing change is broken. Over 70% of all organizational change efforts and personal change efforts (like dieting) fail. When we’re unable to act with agility, speed, and unity because we’ve gotten the “change equation” wrong—often from the outset of problem framing—opportunities are missed and revenue lost.

After three decades of research and thousands of interviews, it’s clear that we change best when we are strongest and most positive, not when we feel the weakest, most negative, or helpless.
