Lateral leadership : A'nother' key change agent skill

Another key skill that every person tasked with making change happen is Lateral Leadership. Roger Fisher (1998, Harper Collins) subtitles his book on lateral leadership as getting things done when you are not the boss. I am sure every 'change agent' can recognize the situation

According to Fisher one can achieve a high level of colloboration that produces high quality results through lateral leadership.This includes three basic steps
  • Organize and sharpen one's  personal skills at getting things done by yourself
  • Understand clearly your strategic goal of an organized way of getting things done with others
  • Learning some tactics of participatory management
