Frustrated that change efforts you’re leading take too long, are too difficult, or are too often ineffective? Discover eight powerful ways to make any change work faster, easier, and better—whether done by C-suite leaders or frontline workers.

In a recent Fast Company article, nine CEOs said the biggest challenges their companies face are all related to change. Change is a constant need and challenge for every organization.  Too often, people who lead change work are frustrated that it’s too slow, hard or ineffective.

Organizational change doesn't have to be so difficult. Leading change expert Jake Jacobs shares eight fail-safe ways to make any change initiative faster, easier and better.  These levers, or smart strategic actions, can be used with the change method you’re already deploying be it PROSCI, Lencioni’s 5 Dysfunctions, Appreciative Inquiry or any other.  Think of the levers as making a good thing even better.
Leverage Change is chockful of practical applications and 44 stories, some contributed by Jennifer Brown, author of The Inclusive Leader.  Your organization suffering from change fatigue?  Then use the Pay Attention to Continuity lever.  Change happening too slowly?  It’s time to Think and Act as if the Future Were Now!
Leverage is about getting more done with fewer hassles, headaches and problems.  Equally applicable to individual, team or organizational change work, Leverage Change is your guidebook to any type of change, in any organization, made by anyone.
