    ♫ Don’t you know they change
    Oh, things change
    As long as this world is turning
    Things are gonna change
    Gonna keep on changing
    Gonna change…♫

    Music and lyrics by: W. Luther, A. Mayo, M. Green and C.M. Lindsey, recorded by Tim McGraw.



    This is another great guest post from Beth Flynn of the Ohio State University Leadership Center. Today Beth is providing us with a 10 step process for instituting lasting change:

    1. Build trust
    2. Create a unified spearhead team
    3. Establish a pressing need for the change to be implemented
    4. Formulate a clear unifying vision
    5. Build and implement a specific strategy
    6. Share the vision often
    7. Enable and equip all shareholders to implement change effort as top priority
    8. Create and recognize improvement, big and small.
    9. Deepen change, making sure all systems, policies, and training promote the change
    10. Keep and create systems that foster open communication, listening, reviewing, and adjusting (Horsager, 2010 p.267)
