Stories (questions/ interactive)Current things you want to changeIndividual levelTeam levelPortfolio/ LC level
We’re all trying to change things at different levels
Unconscious ConsciousYou are doing some of this.. But I want to help bring it up to the conscious level.. Break it all down so you see what goes on behind the scenes..Language + Framework Change
For anything to change…
As an influence..
But before that… storyExplain35,000 units @ $50… 2 years.. No marketingSuccess shows our Built in schizophreniaPart of us… gets up at 5am and go for a jogAnother part.. Warm, comfy, snoozeNormally.. Rational side will lose, clocky helps that win

To change = appeal to bothRider = planning + directionEleph = energy + driveIf you appeal to your team’s…Riders > Elephants = understanding plan – motivationElephants > Riders = motivation – directionFor change – they both need to move together
Let’s understand the 2 main characters in this story….Elephant – has its weaknesses… emotional, instinctiveQuick pay off (ice cream/ choc) vs long term pay off (being fit)Change often fails because rider cant keep the elephant on the road long enough to reach destination..Strenghts- capacity for love, compassion, sympathy,,For change – gives the energy and drive
Rider’s strength = think long term, beyond immediate gratificationWeakness = over analysis… indecisive… gets stuck in the same place
As an influence..
Change is easier when you know where you’re going and why it’s worth it. Destination postcards
1st step – driving to a new destination…Enter destination
Ok, maybe there is a plan.. But how clear and compelling is it?

Investigate what’s working and clone it.
Default tendency – what’s the problem and how can I fix it?Imagine parent… kid’s report card..
Story…Times when I’ve been fit.. What did I do well…Others around me who got fit.. What did they do?
As a leader, how is your Time spent…
Don’t think big picture, think in terms of specific behaviors.
Hands off LD doesn’t work in a change situation.. Hardest part is in the precise detailsAmbiguity is the enemy
GlobAl financial crisis
Knowing vs. DoingPeople understand what’s good, what’s not (Eg. Smokers..) but gap between knowing and doing
Most change situations… leaders focus on strategy, systems, structure… To change behaviour – speak to people’s feelings…See the problems in a way that influence emotions, not just thought
Heart..etc.. Emotions…Knowing something isn’t enough to cause change. Make people feel something.
SONA @ ANC … how was it?What did you think/ feel?
Shrink.. Make smaller..Break down the change until it no longer spooks the Ele- phant.

What’s the difference…?You are closer than you thought…Sense of progress = critical (because elephant is easily demoralised)Remind people what’s already been achieved…

In times of change we need to remind ourself that our brains and abilities are like muscles… they can be strengthened with practice.Motivation comes from feeling.. But also from confidence!Elephant has to believe it is capable of conquering the change.
When you lose, don’t lose the lesson
1960s, senior VP at IBM made a decision that ended up losing the co. $10 million. CEO at the time called him to his office.CEO: Do you know why I’ve asked you here.“I assume I’m here so you can fire me”CEO (looked surprised): Fire you? Of course not. I just spent $10 educating you!
Put alert/ danger sign
Direct rider.. Motivate elephant… As you keep trying to make a switch/ lead change… the rider will always have the burden of keeping the elephant in control…Let’s make things easier…Remove obstacles.. Put clear signs…How can I set up an environment and situations that bring out the best in my people?

When the situation changes, the behavior changes. So change the situation. Think about all the situations around in our environment… which have been tweaked..Smaller plates/ bowls = portion controlLeaving gym clothes ready night before..
ATMs… you have to remove it before you get cash
Amazon (launched in India) – famous “one-click-ordering”Encouraging right behaviours.. Making it easier
Story --- Office set up: Leaders – screen … vs. moving + couchQuiet hours in the air and in office10,000 hour ruleTuesday – Friday: 9am to Lunch = Quiet hours (leave notes on desk etc)
Habits = powerful thing -- When behavior is habitual, it’s “free”—it doesn’t tax the Rider. Look for ways to encourage habits. You’ve consciously or unconsciously already built habitsEg. Meetings (if they start late or with small talk.. That’s now the norm…)Build habits that serve the mission
Action triggers = instant habitsPreloading a decisionImagining time and place when you;ll do itGet your team to set action triggers… every time I come into office, I will immediately…(Example – today on my flight I would… Sunday on my flight I will…Tomorrow after dropping …. I will…
Eg. The reception checklist ( I had this in my place for my trainees… pre – arrival, on arrival, post arrival…. I even had one for this conference…The company checklist
Behavior is contagious. Help it spread.
Unfamiliar situations (fancy table… new organisation.. Think about you at Lcong…)
Video: LEAD (boy pushing tree…)
Eg. Obesity (you change your idea of what is an acceptable body by looking at others around you…) drinking..What you see others around you do.. You feel that is acceptable behaviour (Think about it within AIESEC itself…)Being LATE for sessions… Everyone in my room is sleeping..Everyone is still outside or at dinner… (we follow those cues)Eg. LCPs/ Ebs …. Others will follow… we will learn what is acceptable behaviour…
