The Change Equation: A Scientific Approach to Change

The Change Equation: A Scientific Approach to Change

Although change is constant, we sometimes find ourselves stuck in stagnancy. Like Krazy Glue, we adhere to people, objects, beliefs, feelings, or situations that no longer serve us. Deep at our core, we know something’s gotta give. But how do we create meaningful change, and more importantly, make it last?

There’s a formula I learned when I worked with schools as an instructional coach and facilitator. It was originally created by David Gleicher in the early 1960s, and later refined by Kathie Dannemiller in 1992. The formula assesses the likelihood of a successful change in organizational programs, but it easily applies to the individual.

Dannemiller’s version is: D x V x F > R

The first three factors must be present for meaningful organizational (or individual) change to take place. The three factors are:

D = Dissatisfaction with how things are now

V = Vision of what’s possible

F = First concrete steps that can be taken toward the vision

*If the product of these three factors is greater than

R = Resistance

then change is possible. Falling short on any of the three variables makes resistance to change difficult to overcome, increasing the chance of failure.

I’ve applied this formula to my life and it’s worked for me. That’s how I continue to manifest both the inner and outer life I desire.

Decide what you want to change and apply it. Experiment. See if the formula works for you and let me know in the comments.
