Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for thumb_chapman_pincher.gifThe HBR’s Management tip of the day suggests appealing to people’s hearts, not just their minds in an effort to combat the complacency that can kill a key change initiative?

It recommends such tactics as bringing in emotionally compelling data, people, and images depicting what’s going on in the industry, its markets, and the competition — and showing that the company must alter course to survive. 

It stresses demonstrating your own sense of urgency in every meeting, face-to-face exchanges, and written communication. While this is all good stuff, it’s important  your sense of urgency doesn’t appear as panic – panic is so last week :-)
