How Can I Create a Sense of Urgency for Change?

How Can I Create a Sense of Urgency for Change?

To successfully effect meaningful change, you need a group that shares your belief that something needs to happen. Learn how to build a case for change and then how to use that case to assemble a team to lead the change effort.

Overview

Have you ever noticed a glaring issue, a problem just begging to be resolved, a change just asking to be made—and no one else seems to notice?
And it seems like such a monumental concern that it is hard to believe no one is doing anything about it.

It makes you stop and wonder: Are we even on the same campus?

The problem is that there are a lot of problems. We can’t solve them all, so it’s easy to throw up our hands at any and all of them. Change is hard. Why bother?

Yet when a nagging issue keeps you up at night and you decide to tackle it, you don’t have to give in to the apathy all around you. But you do have to do a little legwork.

Before you can really tackle the problem you want to solve, you have to demonstrate that it is a problem that you have to solve right now. Then you have to convince the right group of people to join you in resolving it.

You can learn how to build your case and build your team in How Can I Create a Sense of Urgency for Change?, a Magna 20-Minute Mentor with Lynn Gillette, Ph.D.

Gillette, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Nicholls State University, has led many successful campus change efforts over the course of his higher education career.

He has been involved with a few that didn’t work out that well, too. And while he knows his theory, he focuses his recommendations on accessible, adaptable strategies that you can grasp and implement right away.

With methods and guidance that are culled from both research and practice, these aren’t ideas that should work. These are plans that do work.
