Change-Friendly Leadership

How to Transform Good Intentions Into Great Performance

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Most attempts to change fall flat.

Around the world, countless change efforts are underway in all kinds of organizations, spearheaded by leaders with good intentions. Despite the good intentions, the majority of these programs will not succeed. Why?

In this radical new book, practitioner Rodger Dean Duncan shows that humanness, approachability, and friendliness are necessary but often overlooked elements of making change successful.

Change cannot be achieved by a press release, slogan, or announcement. Effective organizational change requires the active, mindful participation of the people affected by the change. Leaders must learn how to bring their entire team on board with changes and ensure they are invested in the process as well as in the outcome.

The Friendly Factor is not just a play on words. It's the very foundation for effectively engaging people's heads, hearts, and hopes. The Change-Friendly framework is based on timeless principles that are tried and true in even the toughest situations. Using this framework will enable you to create effective, lasting change in your organization.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 09, 2012 – As business shifts and technological innovation continue to revolutionize the way we do business, the only constant is change—and too many leaders are uncomfortable with it, says consultant and coach Duncan. Aiming to deliver a user-friendly guide to managing change, transition, and implementation for a broad range of readers, he addresses executives, HR professionals, universities, local governments, and community organizers. Though strategy and structure are important, successful change is about a shift in behaviors, and that’s the nut Duncan sets out to crack—focusing on engagement, curiosity, and coaching. He sets up some acronym-heavy but catchy systems, such as “Think-Friendly” questions, which encourage creative thought, and the “FIND-IT” setup (Focus, Inquire, Notice, Discern—Integrate, Translate). Duncan’s tone is lively and peppered with stories, specific processes, and self-assessments; his lessons in leadership and advice for building a culture and behaviors that are open to change are particularly on point. The extraordinary list of accolades from peers (Stephen M.R. Covey, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Ken Blanchard, and many others) are well deserved for this invaluable guide to anyone struggling with the demands of change.
