I’ve written about change before. We all encounter change daily—in our personal lives, at work, and libraries are no different. I think we can all use advice on dealing with change. And those of you who lead organizations or groups can no doubt use advice on helping others to make changes with you. Changing Something? Start it Right offers that excellent advice for you.
I especially like the Reasons Not to Change graphic, and this quote: “It’s your idea. But ownership by others comes through being allowed to use one’s own ideas for the implementation.” You have to help them overcome all of those reasons not to change, and come to endorse the change, as if the idea were their own.
