check your progress

Here are some signs that you and your change team are making progress:

  • You have developed a collective identity reflecting the shared concern or desired change (Belmar et al., 2018; Grinspun, 2018; Serna-Restrepo et al., 2018).
  • You have visible social ties emerging; change agents and others express their commitment to the change initiative and remain actively engaged in activities (Serna-Restrepo et al., 2018)
  • You have a collective identity expressed through tangible representations (e.g., pin, t-shirt) that is becoming increasingly more visible, and garnering new attention and interest (Bajnok et al., 2018b; Serna-Restrepo et al., 2018).
  • You have a collective identity that shifts or changes. This reflects its fluid nature and is a natural evolution of a collective identity and the meaning given by those involved in the change. It is not concerning; rather it can signify new priorities arising (Bibby et al., 2009; Carson-Stevens et al. 2013).
