Arthur Carmazzi – Organizational Change – Who should Lead Organizational Change
Finding your “Key Influencers” is kinda like checking your friends on Facebook to see who has the most friends who comment and interact with them. While there may be others with more friends by number, those may be shallow acquaintances or maybe just collected individuals who have no real connection. But those who’s friends interact with them, answer questions, reply to posts and “like” and follow what they like and follow… means they have influence.
The same can be said for an office or department, the person or persons who seem to get the most positive interaction from the people they work with, are key influencers.
So when we are looking to create an organizational change plan, these are the people we want on our side, these are the people we want to “Influence” those who that already have influence with.
But there are negative key influencers too, and these people will be the ones who can undermine you change efforts. It often boils down to the proverbial good against evil and the fight for influence. When changing organizational culture, taking control of the good and subduing the evil is paramount and such is the Hero’s Way. So watch Part 1 of the video, to learn how to be a hero and transform Organizational Culture in the process.
