Accountability drivers

The last step in Kotter’s approach is anchoring the new changes in the culture. The way we do this is through accountability.
Accountability
We can boil motivation to comply with the new order down to three perspectives: Positive incentives, negative consequences and a sense of personal accountability. While the first two are arguably effective they are short term solutions and will no longer encourage motivation if they are removed. However, a sense of personal accountability is by far the best and most long term motivator to achieve employee compliance.

Don't be a Change Agent

Avoid the term "change agent."
Gauge the internal hunger for change.
Arrive without a vision.
Go directly to "us".
Act as catalyst not cattle prod.
Surround yourself with new friends.
