The Impact of Change

John Kotter, who has written some great books on change and change management, talks about naming the people who would be impacted by the change that you may be proposing for your ministry or church. From there, we are able to more adequately assess how we can lead them through a change process.

In what ways would you apply these thoughts to your ministry?

For me, just asking the question alone hits at the heart of the matter. Who is impacted? Then, speak about change through their lens so that they can embrace the change as positive as opposed to fighting an uphill battle of resistance because I didn’t take the time to think about it from their point of view.
