The Four Kinds of Burning Platforms | Conner Partners

The Four Kinds of Burning Platforms | Conner Partners | Business change | Scoop.it
I promised to curate the next article by Daryl Conner on the four types of burning platforms stories and how they are used in org change work. Well, here it is -- and it is really good.

Any leader, business, or consultant needs to know the particulars in this article. Here is a sneak preview -- the burning platforms stories are NOT really about creating urgency for change.

I appreciate Daryl for clearing up these misconceptions about this story. And don't forget to read his first blog post about the burning platform that I curated below.

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, December 11, 2012 9:01 PM

Karen Dietz curated this article by Daryl Conner on four types of burning platforms.  A burning platform is a concept leaders use to define the reason for change.  As Daryl points out this may be based on a negative problem  based appeal or a positive, future opportunity.


Which is better?


Research on personal change has reported greater long term success with positive images.    In most serious change projects, we usually use both. 


You cannot and should not hide business challenges from employees.  


However, once they understand the challenge they will then want to hear your reasoning about why they should consider giving more of themselves to the organization.   I would make it good.
