The subject of leading change is of paramount importance for leaders these days as it seems that, more than ever, the only constant is change. It is crucial to not only have a vision, but also to be skilled at translating that vision into reality and sustaining it. Leaders must know where to start, how to win support and cope with resistance, and how to institutionalize the change initiative.

Leading Change Step-by-Step offers a comprehensive and tactical guide for change leaders. This field-tested approach from change expert Jody Spiro has been used successfully for more than a decade in a wide variety of organizations, including K–12 schools and districts, universities, international agencies, and nonprofits. The book is filled with proven tactics for implementing change successfully, with helpful tools to put change efforts into practice—including rubrics, helpful questions to ask, and common mistakes to avoid. Also included are stories of struggle and success that show how this approach has been used effectively in 22 states and internationally. The tools guide leaders through analyzing situations, identifying stakeholders, and working with them effectively to bring about the desired results.
