How far are you willing to go to facilitate change in your organization? Management expert, David Maister, says you’ve got to be willing to go first. And he means all the way, even to the point of resigning if your change efforts fail. Instead of saying “Charge!” to the troops, say “Follow me!”.

It’s a good read and suggests a pragmatic four-step approach to trying it out yourself. While the author has provided a good set of questions to begin with, you would certainly need to tailor that up/down to match your situation. Let me know if it works for you.
