Our Iceberg is Melting

Just finish reading this marvelous management book by John Kotter & Holger Rathgeber. "Our Iceberg is Melting" talks about changing and succeeding under any conditions, no matter on corporate, sole propriety, management, relationship, education and almost everything you can think.

I'm not kidding, just imagine you are the penguins, and what you're facing the problems is the iceberg. There are these 8 important steps for managing the change:
1) Create a sense of urgency.
2) Pull together a guiding team.
3) Create a change vision and strategy.
4) Communicate to others and get the buy-in.
5) Empower others to act and make the new vision a reality.
6) Produce short-terms wins.
7) Don't let up
8) Create the new culture.

Phew~ its really the time for me to change. Luckily i got this from DS and it come in handy :) Change change change
