Influential articles by both Kotter and Vantage.

Decades of research and real-world practice inform Kotter and Vantage’s global thought leadership. Dr. John Kotter is the bestselling author of 24 books on change. Interviews and influential articles by both firms’ executives regularly appear in Fortune, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review, Ivey Business Journal, California Management Review, Training Industry, Talent Management & HR, and other leading journals.

Change looks and feels different, depending on whether one is charged with making it happen, or called upon to implement, adopt, or adapt to it. This often produces an unhelpful dynamic. Leaders are frustrated by what they perceive as resistance when people raise questions or concerns. Those on the receiving end of change feel unheard and disrespected by ‘clueless leaders’ who seem removed from operational reality. As a result, opportunities for learning are missed, morale suffers, and progress is slowed and sometimes stymied altogether. How can companies break this ‘cycle of mutual dismissal’ that so often bedevils change efforts?
