8 EFFECTING CHANGE How Change Actually Happens in a Bureaucracy Growing Grass and Seeding Clouds Elephants, Jockeys and the Path Forward

9 Most often, change starts with a grass roots movement. Leadership support is needed to provide top cover Resistance occurs between grass roots and top cover Success happens when top cover meets grass roots. NOTE: You can only effect change by working from both the top and bottom. YOU CANNOT WIN BY FIGHTING THE SKY. How Change Actually Works in a Bureaucracy

10  The Emotional Mind Is Like an Elephant -Illogical -Determined  Just Gets Stuff Done  Mental ‘Muscle Memory’  Emotion Side of Decisions -Loyalty / Love / Fear / Comfort The Mind Plays Two Distinctly Independent Decision-Making Functions Simultaneously. The Emotional Mind or the Elephant

11  Is Like a Jockey -Logical -Reasoned  Organizes and Moves Forward  Analytical Side of Decisions -Long-term / strategic planning / cost-benefit analysis The Rational Mind or the Jockey The Mind Plays Two Distinctly Independent Decision-Making Functions Simultaneously.

13  Shrink the Change -Don’t try to change the entire organization, only their office, team, etc. -Bring it down to a daily task level  Shape a Clear Path Forward -Provide Clear Instructions & Outcomes *Motivates the Jockey -Support, Hand-Hold, Whatever *Motivates the Elephant  Repeat What Works -Find Bright Spots & Recreate them -Tweak Environment and Tactics Motivating Both The Elephant and Jockey The Mind Plays Two Distinctly Independent Decision-Making Functions Simultaneously.

14  Find people interested in the change (grass-roots) and get them excited about it.  Meet with decision-makers (top-cover)  Continue grass-roots evangelism while you get approval  Enable adaptation—support grass-roots by becoming part of the group  Touch bright spots and get them sharing. Tie those bright spots in with the boss  Don’t waste much effort on resistance  Keep moving forward, but take time to work one-on-one with people Bring it all together What Change Looks Like in the Weeds
