A must read for anyone involved in leadership/executive coaching. I recently attended Bregman's four day coaching training conference and much of the work was based on this book. A real game changer!

I love this book. i read it cover to cover in the waiting room at the doctor's office. It is not only a quick and easy read, it gets to the point quickly, telling short and interesting stories to illustrate, not make, the point. And it offers solid, actionable advice that works. Its hard to find good books that are well worth the money and the time to read them, but this book is a solid winner and a great value to anyone's career.

Good book

...especially because I have been reading all of Peter Bregman's articles on HBR and learned a lot from them...

Having said that...I will have to admit that this book sorely disappointed. Reading an entire book that read like powerpoint presentations can be extremely boring...I frankly couldn't wait to finish the book and put it away. I am an avid reader, and read anything that either I can learn from, or that arouses my curiousity, and that could be almost anything.

So how would I rate a book as 5 star, or the best rating possible ? While the learning that I derive from the book is an essential element, it is more the writing style that determines it's rating. By that I mean that from the moment I pick up the book to read, it should encompass me, engulf me, overwhelm and overtake me, to the point where it is what I want to be doing (reading it) over everything else going on in my life. This book did not even come close. There are many, many books that have, and I would rate them a 5, but those books do not need to be mentioned in this review. Suffice to say, this book sorely disappointed, even though I have great regard and respect for the author Peter Bregman. I will continue reading his articles though, since that is what I think he does best.

Subtitled A Short Guide to Leading a Big Change, this practical, hands-on book starts with the timely quote - "People don't resist change. They resist being changed." Bregman, CEO of a leadership development and change management firm, presents 7 key steps for managing change in any organization, providing specific examples and clearly defined guidelines through this insightful book.

Here are his 7 themes:
1. Share the story. Include Content, Context and Confidence.
2. Keep everything simple (includes his JETS trademark - Just Enough To Start).
3. Get it half right. The program isn't the point. The point of the program is the point.
4. Integrate the change, Create a supportive environment.
5. Provide on-going support (includes his trademarked coaching model QUICC - Question, Understand, Identify, Choose and Contract).
6. Build in feedback. Help them manage their own change.
7. Use the partner system. Change sticks when both people and their environment changes.

According to Bregman, people who change embody three key attributes - Ownership, Capability and Persistence. Providing the opportunity for each employee to be engaged in the change is the key.

Point B is more than just a book, it is an important catalyst for change as it provides real world foundations and background along with enactable concepts for driving ownership and leadership in a sustainable model, providing for proper coaching, a goal-driven model, and improved team interactions that make sense.

I have found it more than well-received among my teams. In fact, for them it is more than a book, it has become an integral part of everyday interaction and a continual guide. Issues have been identified as "Point B" issues and processes get "Bregman-ized". With the model presented in the book, the teams are able to function better cross-functionally and organizationally.

I call the book a game changer because it makes you re-evaluate how you look at goals and how you achieve these in a sustainable way within small or large teams/organizations to ensure you are focused on the team ability to own and drive to success. It shows you how to change the rules so that everyone can achieve satisfaction along the solution path.

I picked up this book to help with a huge change initiative I was planning with and for a client. My hope was that I would glean some quick insights that we could put to immediate use in the roll out to help minimize resistance and maximize the likelihood of success. The book definitely delivered on that front. While "Point B: A Short Guide to Leading a Big Change" is indeed short in size, it is long on content. Peter Bregman has a unique and refreshing perspective that is revealed through his engaging stories. He provides great insights about why the ways we typically "try to change people" simply don't work - and he gives specific strategies to help you get the results you want simply, effectively and with a fraction of the stress you'd probably expect. This book has been great for business -- but it's even better for real life! The principles you'll learn will work not only in the office -- but with your family, friends and kids too! I recommend it highly!
Point B is short, but contains a wealth of practical information for anyone who has a role in leading change -- business leaders, consultants, and everyone who is part of a major change. The approach is based on sound theory and principles, but is immensely practical and presented in a style that is clear, concise and easy to use. Bregman provides many examples, each of which is relevant and clarifies things. One of the most valuable aspects of this guide is the way Bregman describes how to work with others to achieve change -- by collaborating with them, being honest and realizing that in the end, the people who live the change are in charge. That's what really makes change happen.
