Publisher's Summary

Organizational change doesn’t have to be so difficult. Leading change expert Jake Jacobs shares eight fail-safe ways to make any change initiative at any organization easier, faster, and more effective.

In a recent Fast Company article, nine CEOs said the biggest challenges their companies face are all related to change. Change is a constant need and a constant challenge for every organization - large or small, for-profit, nonprofit, or governmental. Is there a way to make it easier?
If you’re trying to lift something heavy, it helps to have a lever. 

In this book, Jake Jacobs provides eight levers that can transform the typical change process into something far smoother and more efficient - he calls the new process "leverage change". Jacobs offers proven advice and real-life examples that will accelerate every step of the change process, including designing your own customized change process, figuring out where the real energy for change is in your organization, striking the right balance between explicit direction and creative collaboration, making change work as part of people’s regular routines, and more. Archimedes said with the right lever, he could move the world - with Jacobs’ eight levers, you can change your world.

A Revelatory Perspective

Throughout my life, I have been conditioned to believe that I cannot have my cake and eat it too. As I read through this book I realized that my dichotomous thinking led to my limiting beliefs, beliefs that prevented me from achieving greater potential both personally and professionally. Jake Jacobs does an excellent job of helping to reframe your thoughts in a way that helps you to approach issues with a "both/and" perspective, rather than the limited "either/or" trap (i.e., having your cake and eating it too). I look forward to sharing this book with my colleagues!
