When a person has written 18 books and 12 of them are bestsellers, it is an honor and daunting task to a) filter their work into meaningful sections for our readers and b) to create an interview that does the same.
In the August 2011 edition of Leadership Guide Magazine , our “Leader in Action,” John Kotter, presented just such an honor and challenge. Not since we featured Ken Blanchard and his similarly wide-ranging contributions to leadership have we chosen to divide a focus on a leader into two issues.
The focus this month is on Kotter’s world-renowned expertise in change and for September, how to focus that change into lasting organizational transformation.
Our interview with Kotter contains follow-up questions on his three books that focus on change: Leading Change, The Heart of Change, and The New Rules . As a Harvard professor, writer, and lecturer Kotter has been dedicated to providing ever-increasing depths of insight about the two key components of organizational success: change and leadership.
In a related article, we take an in-depth look at Kotter’s flagship book about change, Leading Change.
