ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effort targeting behavioral change at a local fire department in the U.S. The author points out that for every organizational change, there are some faded to obscurity after brief shortcomings. Whether an individual who want to change is a new promotee, or a new chief, it is vital to get beyond the first phase of change and go through transition to prolong sustainability. When targeting change, people need simple understanding and move toward commitment and compliance.
