Avoiding the peril of pig wrestling – a framework and tools for managers and leaders to create a climate for successful change. A thought provoking read with an interesting approach to problem solving and change management with techniques and strategies for both individuals and teams.
This book is easy to pick up and digest when time is precious, an engaging read based on a fable around avoiding the perils of ‘pig wrestling’. If you have a problem (or challenge) you have been wrestling with for some time despite your best efforts to find or secure a great solution, then Pete and Mark’s approach offers some useful tools. Strategies such as cleaning the problem (a clean pig is much easier to wrestle with), avoiding premature evaluation (don’t jump straight to the solution) and re-framing the problem (changing your perspective and your approach). The easy to follow steps, stretched my thinking and helped me see how I could look at problems and challenges differently, I particularly liked the re-framing and cleaning the language related to the problem which has helped shift my thinking.
