PeopleLution Adapts Jack London's Classic Short Story "To Build A Fire" to Accelerate Organizational Change for Educators

MANSFIELD, OH--(Marketwire - March 1, 2011) - Educators and trainers know this to be true...successful organizations constantly change. This is also true: leaders who want to revamp all or part of their organizations need approval from their people for their change to stick. Unfortunately, people dislike change. They prefer the status quo.

PeopleLution, organizational change specialists, has visually adapted Jack London's short story "To Build A Fire" into an influential 9 minute video to help educators, trainers, and organizational leaders cognitively restructure their people to accept upcoming organizational change.

"Successfully bringing about organizational change is difficult stuff, especially in a tough economy," says Willie Davis, "Choices" Producer. "We adapted Jack London's 1908 classic story of a man and a dog in the Yukon into a nine minute entertaining DVD and named it 'Choices.'"

"Choices" helps educators, trainers, and organizational leaders trigger meaningful discussions about organizational change. It's designed to help schools, educational conferences, social service agencies, law enforcement agencies, community groups, churches, board meetings, seminars, political gatherings, and any business, in any industry, cope with change.

"Pushing back against organizational change is human nature," says Dr. Samantha Kurtz, author of the 16 page Discussion Guide that accompanies the "Choices" DVD. The guide, based on proven psychological principles, navigates leaders and managers through a step-by-step facilitated discussion to overcome resistance and inspire their people to think proactively about organizational change. "Showing 'Choices' lays the ground work for cognitive restructuring for any initiative -- from a major organizational overhaul to the need for increased productivity," says Dr. Kurtz.

"Choices" also entertains. "Audiences can't take their eyes off the screen," says Davis. "The lone voice and visuals are mesmerizing. London's story has been used to teach a lot of different lessons, but not organizational change. This is unique."
