About the Book

Organizations spend huge amounts of time developing strategies, and yet so many of them fail to yield positive results. The truth is, even the best strategies will not succeed if they are not fully adopted. For this to happen, employees must know exactly what personal behaviors align with the new strategy, how those behaviors fit into an overall business plan, and how they will be held accountable to execute the plan.

In this guidebook, you’ll discover how to ensure your team members adopt your strategy. Learn how to make psychological, structural, and contractual connections. You’ll also find out how to

  • • create an environment that encourages change;
  • • communicate and manage expectations;
  • • develop different elements of trust to ensure success;
  • • assess your effectiveness as a manager and leader.

Written in clear language and loaded with examples, this roadmap will help you get the strategies you’ve worked so hard to develop adopted. Make the critical connections needed to assure sustained, organization-wide adoption of a new strategy and further your Corporate Success.
