Praise for Creating Contagious Commitment, 2nd Ed (2010)

It is very easy to have good intentions, and even easier to get advice from someone who has good intentions. What is hard is to recognize the landmines on the path to successful change. Creating Contagious Commitment helps identify and think about such obstacles before we encounter them, making the path to change more thoughtful and ultimately more successful. —Dan Ariely, Ph.D., James B. Duke Professor of Behavioral Economics, author Predictably Irrational
It is only by effectively influencing people’s beliefs, values and changing social norms that we can change behaviors that get us all to “yes.” Andrea understands this and clearly maps out how new cultural norms can be systematically embedded into any organization. This book is a must have in any change agent’s toolbox. —Peter Faill, M.Sc., Corporate Procurement Manager, Durham County Council, UK
Driving and sustaining change in large organizations is difficult and time consuming. Many change initiatives end in failure and frustration.

Andrea Shapiro sets the “change table” and doesn’t forget a thing. Linking and integrating change levers, she creates a complete blueprint for rebuilding an organizations culture. —Kathleen Ponder, Ph.D., Global Director Duke Corporate Education

Praise for Creating Contagious Commitment, 1st Ed (2003)

The Tipping Point is a brilliant computer model of change initiatives as they unfold in large, complex organizations. Change agents need to be informal, keenly aware of the different needs of different types of people, and committed to their purpose. This book shows what to do and what happens along the way, both in the model and in real life. —Art Kleiner, author, Who Really Matters and The Age of Heretics
Innovative methods used for introducing the concepts of organizational change to employees are both fun and creative. What really stands out with this book is its accessibility; its direct applications to the world of work; and its practical strategies for effectively managing organizational change. —M. Shields, Ph.D., School of Business, Christchurch College of Education, New Zealand

Few authors get down to the nitty-gritty business of how to do change right. Andrea Shapiro takes managers, change agents and would-be-champions right down to where the rubber meets the road.
