Change happens! Make it work for you. That's the theme of the book. In today's fast-paced world, organisations and the people who work there are going through rapid change. Most successful leaders are able to make the most of these dynamic environments. They understand themselves, understand others and understand how to manage and motivate behavioural change. It is through these core skills that they are able to prosper through change, and gather the influence they need to be successful. These skills are relevant for everyone - regardless of their role or hierarchical position However, Step Up has been written specifically for people who are more technically focused, but are at that stage in their career where they know they need to change if they want to advance. They can be accountants, financial planners, risk management experts, financial controllers, engineers, scientists or even doctors. They are people who associate with their technical craft first, even though they may now be in a leadership role. Author, and change management expert, Michelle Gibbings believes that there are skills, practices and techniques that individuals, teams and organisations can apply to make change work. She shares these in her new book and they include learning how to:- Own your mindset- Strengthen your integrity- Be agile and know the system- Appeal to human insight and motivate- Create a story- Nurture relationships- Communicate with influence- Negotiate wisely. Step Up is practically focused and theoretically based. Every idea that is presented has at its core some form of scientific research or evidence that backs up the position. It includes practical things that you can do to build your platform for influence. 'To my mind, change is about getting stuff done and to get stuff done in an organisation you need to be influential' says Gibbings.
