In this seventh post, based on Nick Anderson's book, Focusing Change to Win, we highlight contributions from 1072 Business Leaders. This post gives some of the key findings on effective communications and how they impact resistance and ultimately change success. The following is based on 684 contributors who chose to add comments on communicating change. Unsurprisingly, contributors see their people at the heart of any successful change process. They see gaining stakeholder commitment and creating a cadre of change ambassadors as a force multiplier. Essential to creating that commitment are leaders taking their people into their confidence with honesty and courage.
