Change Toolkit

See Resources for more toolkits.

Is there a cause you are passionate about, or a problem you want to solve to make the world a better place? This Change Toolkit provides links to tools to develop a plan of action to advocate for change. Ever since I heard about the How To Start a Revolution Webinar created by Jonathan Fields, I’ve been gathering tools to explore these ideas. Scott Dinsmore at Live Your Legend describes the webinar in his article 18 Field-Tested Steps to Launching a Non-Violent Revolution. I’m sure there are more tools out there, if you know of some please share them at the Daily PlanIt Facebook Page.

I developed a couple tools of my own while working on a plan:

ChangeOutlineCLARIFY THE IDEA

COMMUNICATE

Develop a brand to use for communicating your idea or vision in a way that is clear and compelling.

Design for contagion.

All these elements should be as captivating as possible.

Consider the Success Model from Made to Stick by Chip and Dan Heath.

And the Stepps Model from Jonah Berger’s “Contagious: Why Things Catch on.”
