    Talk about benefits until the team decide to make the change, then stay out of the way. Let the team think it was their idea.

    This is a very good question. Just how hands-on does he really need to get? I didn’t vote because I do not know. For sure “talk about it”, take it to the field and every unit and management teams, is vital, but what counts even more I think is how and what he says. It is a salesman’s job. To raise the need for the change. To make the change safe and understandable is as challenging as making the top level strategic plans practical and reasonable on the operational daily life. And that takes the “Dig in, understand the details and get involved” OR I wonder is it enough to do the pre-sales only (meaning that less details and dig-in work is required), get the initial enthusiasm raised, and the change is driven by the people who it actually concerns?
