The Language of Change (part 1)Posted on
Post 3 of 4 in a series of articles on the subject of leading large-scale change in organisations (part 1).
Part 1 looked at the power and dangers of metaphors in leading change and suggested replacing the “burning platform” with the idea of a “High Noon moment”. Part 2 discussed the dangers of underestimating how long it takes people to change and what you can do about it. This post – which I’ll spread over four days – will suggest how leaders can frame their change language to best effect.
