Format: Paperback
Employee's Survival Guide to Change is an excellent starting point for employees to understand how to manage themselves and advance professionally in a change project. This little book creates awareness of the change process for the employee. ADKAR is a great tool and this little book works well as an introduction to the ADKAR model. It will not bog employees down with too much detail - there is just enough here to gain an understanding of how people navigate change and what they can do to be successful.

In the book, Jeff provides simple, easy to follow exercises to evaluate where you are in the change process and what you can do to shift if you are stuck. It educates them on what their role could be if they chose to support the change, and the benefits of doing so. He also discusses what the consequences of resisting change might be, if they choose that route.

On the cover is a quote: "The best Change Management guide a business can provide to its employees." I agree. It is the best one I have found to date. The writing is simple, clean, and easy to follow. The artists' drawings are a nice touch and actually tie in very well to the subject, even helping to land the message well. My recommendation is to give each employee a copy of this book to read and understand before you begin your change project. Do this right after the leadership team communicates WHY the change is happening and be prepared for lots of questions.

I thought there would be more to this book. It seemed instead to be more of a sales pitch for other books and materials. I probably won't be able to use this to really help "Employees Survive" change. This book doesn't touch on any of the the things people need to do to reestablish thier sense of control or purpose or support. I was hoping for a more comprehensive set of survival tips. There are a few things that could be useful in some instances, but in general I don't think I will be able to use it.

In the `Employee's Survival Guide to Change' the author gives us insight into how we can adapt and be successful in dealing with the evolution of business otherwise known as change. Dealing with change is a process and Hiatt helps us understand that with a very simple structured model called `ADKAR'. The process requires that you digest one step at a time to be prepared for the next. Before you can react you need to be aware. Once you are aware you need to be motivated, which means you have to have the desire to act. Now that you know you need to act and you have incentive to do so you need to know what to do....that is knowledge. At this point you may think you are ready to act but another step is required which is ability....can you do it? The last step in the process is re-enforcement. You need to keep repeating the message so that the team does not forget the mission. Simply put: ADKAR is Awareness, Desire, Knowledge, Ability and Re-enforcement. Now go read and learn....

Format: Paperback
This book is ideal for application for personal or professional use. It really brings Change Management "speak" to a very understandable level for any level employee. Our firm is using this book for basic CM training for executives and down. It allows one to learn basic CM concepts without getting into theory and processes. The ADKAR discussions are right on and easy to understand. The book answers "how does change affect ME and what can I do to adjust?".
