The Heart of Change: Real-Life Stories of How People Change Their Organizations (1st edition)

There’s an old saying that “the only constant is change.” John P. Kotter and Dan S. Cohen’s book, The Heart of Change: Real-Life Stories of How People Change Their Organizations recommends “8 steps” to help you manage change effectively, particularly in business. 

The Heart of Change expounds on the eight stages Kotter previously presented in Leading Change, (published in 1996). His latest book, coauthored by Cohen, includes advice on how to “effectively communicate the vision and strategies,” “keep pushing for wave after wave of change until the work is done,” and “create a new culture to make new behavior stick.”

Kotter, a published author for over twenty years and a retired faculty member of the Harvard Business School, brings over thirty years of experience to The Heart of Change. His coauthor, Dan Cohen, works as a professional consultant on “organizational transformation.” His prior experience includes human resources, finance, and real estate. Their interviews of real people, in real organizations, present a side of organizational transformation often forgotten-- “the feelings” associated with change.
