Change starts at the top and begins on day one

Change starts at the top and begins on day one: Change is inherently unsettling for people at all levels of an organization, and
when it is on the horizon all eyes will turn to the CEO and the leadership team for strength, support, and direction. The leadership
must change first to challenge and motivate the rest of the institution,speaking with one voice and “walking the talk” to model desired
behavior. At the same time, individual executive team members are going through their own personal changes and need to be supported so
that they can be in agreement with their executive team members.Executive teams that work well together, that are aligned and
committed to the direction of change, that understand the culture and behaviors it intends to introduce, and that can model those changes
themselves are best positioned for success.
