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.

Change is in the air and oh, how I love this article about a newer model for getting organizational change done -- Viral Change!

 

When a company starts working with stories, it requires re-thinking current models because the dynamics of storytelling (i.e memory, simulation, conversation, listening, sharing, ethics, etc.) demand different models and implementation strategies.
