How we do it

 

It’s not about winning Hearts & Minds –
it’s about winning Minds & Hearts

Winning Hearts and Minds is a phrase often used in the media – but at Gatehouse, we believe it is the wrong way round. The ‘Gatehouse 6As Behavioural Change Model’ challenges the commonly held belief that change occurs by winning Hearts and Minds – and argues that it is, in fact, the other way round – that people need to rationally understand something, before they are prepared to emotionally change.



Minds
Hearts
Activism
Apathy
Awareness
Appreciation
Action
Advocacy

The 6As illustrates communication as a journey employees take from awareness (or, in some cases, apathy) towards advocacy.

Whatever the focus of your communication, you will inevitably have employees at each and every stage. Some will be open to listen (awareness); will understand and support what you're trying to do (appreciation) and ultimately be prepared to change (action). You might even achieve some real fans who will help you on your cause (advocates).

However, some will be apathetic to your message - uninterested and disengaged. They don't really care what the organisation does, so long as it doesn't affect them and they still get their pay cheque.

And then there will be others who are far more dangerous and difficult to deal with - the small number of highly negative activists we find lurking inside many organisations.

The thinking inherent in the model guides the way we approach client projects. We use it to research and map the audience, to identify which communication strategies are right for each stage of a project and to track and monitor progress.
