How to Turn Uncertainty Into Opportunity

By Curtis Bateman, Curtis Garbett, Marche Pleshette, Andy Cindrich, Doug Faber, Christi Phillips

Be the Captain of Your Change Journey

"...a must-read for those seeking to thrive in an increasingly dynamic world and for leaders who have teams that are experiencing change." —Amazon review

2023 OWL Awards Longlist in Business Management
#1 New Release in Business Mentoring & Coaching, Decision-Making & Problem Solving, and Business Management

While every change is unique, there is a predictable pattern to change. Understand that pattern, and you can turn change into opportunity!

Change is inevitable. When unexpected or unwanted change disrupts well-established routines, personally and professionally, it’s natural to wonder, “Who rocked the boat?” Unfortunately, that is exactly the wrong question to ask! Discover from the change experts with decades of experience at FranklinCovey how successful leaders engage people experiencing change and turn change into opportunity.

FranklinCovey is the world leader in helping organizations achieve results that require collective behavior change. They have built a Change Model that demystifies the uncertainty of change and creates the opportunity to realize greater results, personal growth, and even innovation.

A simple but profound business parable. Change: How to Turn Uncertainty Into Opportunity begins with a business parable that invites leaders to reflect on their own change journey and discover how their “crew” falls into a set of predicable patterns and reactions. Whatever the size or scope of the change you’re facing, by following the story’s Change Model you can confidently lead and chart a way forward knowing what will come next.

Inside find:

  • Concrete examples and step-by-step instructions on how to engage teams through the change process
  • How the Change Model makes change actionable and predictable
  • How to minimize the disruption of change
  • Where most change initiatives fail and how to adapt

If you have read Who Moved My CheeseSwitchOur Iceberg is Melting, or Managing Transitions, you will love this book.

Who Rocked the Boat?

By

Learn How to Turn Change into Opportunity

“Change is not merely necessary to life—it is life.” –Alvin Toffler

In this FranklinCovey book on responding to change, explore your own experiences with change using a river journey parable as a point-of-reference. Take this voyage and discover timeless principles and timely results from an industry leader who has helped numerous organizations turn disruptive change into individual and collective opportunity.         

Who Rocked the Boat? We all travel along various rivers in life, which means at any moment we can find ourselves navigating their uncertainty—whether a global pandemic, a new boss, a shift in employment, business restructuring, a new role on a team, starting a new course in school, a new business strategy, the birth of a child, divorce, or responding to a setback on a project or personal goal.

Shift happens! Change is going to happen. It’s a fact of life. Understanding your reactions and making good choices could make the difference between capitalizing on an opportunity or resisting and missing an important chance.

The FranklinCovey Change Model. While every change is unique, there is a predictable pattern to change, and understanding this pattern and building the skills to navigate it is often the difference between success and failure. The FranklinCovey Change Model provides the structure necessary to orient, ground, and gain clarity about change. Then, like the ship’s crew in the river journey parable, we can use the model as a map to chart our way forward: making key decisions, adopting new behaviors, and building ideal conditions for innovation. Today, with change coming at us in fast and increasingly disruptive ways, understanding The Change Model is more important than ever.

If books such as Together Is Better by Simon Sinek, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, or Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson have been valuable, you will want to read Who Rocked the Boat?
