Build Support Among Like-Minded People

From Reinvention 101, Bold Ideas on Reinventing Yourself:

Too many politicians (both political and industrial) attempt to reinvent themselves by abruptly changing the organization without building consensus.  Why?  They don’t have any clue how to change anything… except the subject!

Begin by seeking out people who are discontented with the status quo in the same way or for the same reasons that you are.  Wander among your employees and ask questions that bring out the discontent they are suffering.  Take your staff to lunch individually and ask,  “Are you satisfied with the programs we are doing?” “Are we getting the results you feel we could if we put forth our best effort?” “How would you change things if you had the opportunity?”

Take notes and find those who agree with you.  Include their comments and suggestions where you can to build support. Use their discontent to build a base of support to take to the group as a whole.
