Navigating Change: The Podcast from Teibel Education

Small Initiatives Set the Course for Big Change

Episode Summary

Want to condition yourself to do 100 push-ups a day? Then start with just one, and do it right after you use the restroom. Such is the advice from Stanford professor BJ Fogg in his TEDxTalk about using tiny habits to launch big change in your life. The same is true for organizational change. This week on the show, Gail Gregory joins Pete Wright to share the experience of UMass Lowell and their effort to transform the institution, one tiny initiative at a time. Gregory and UMass Lowell’s Lauren Turner published the story of that journey in the Winter 2015-16 edition of CUPA-HR’s _Higher Education Workplace_ magazine.
