Join Britt Andreatta for an in-depth discussion in this video Building the lead team, part of Leading Change.
Now you're ready to build your lead team.…You want to be very mindful of your choices at this stage.…This team needs to be carefully crafted to yield the best success.…Ideally this lead team should be four to seven people because research shows…that this is the most effective size in terms of communication and accountability.…Any other folks who should be involved can be positioned for the various…roles we discussed in the last video, as part of the input team.…You want to put together a combination…of roles, and personal qualities or characteristics.…There may be overlaps between them, so…play with the combination until it feels right.…
First, you want at least one person who was part…of phase 1, where you identified and defined the problem.…Second, you'll want at least one to two representatives from the…group or groups who will be most impacted by the change.…Third, you want at least one champion who believes that…this change is important and can see the positive outcome…it will bring.…And fourth, you want at least one neutral member.…
Along the way, the course covers techniques that will increase the likelihood of your change succeeding, such as anticipating resistance, creating a compelling vision, and using emotional intelligence to build staff consensus.
