In The Executive Checklist, author James Kerr offers a valuable list of 10 "to-dos" that can guide you through the process of change. This list, created specifically for executives and decision makers, can be used to implement wide-scale transformation in your team or organization.
It might sound overly simple to use a checklist to manage such a complex initiative. But, in the audio clip below from our premium members' Book Insight, the author breaks these ten to-dos down even further by giving readers sub-lists that support each item on the master list.
The advantage of using these checklists is that they help you avoid skipping an important step, or overlooking a key element of the change process. This, in turn, decreases your stress, and increases the likelihood that you'll get your people on board with a successful initiative.
