TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE THAT LASTS
The modern marketplace demands organizational agility and responsiveness and yet up to 75% of transformation efforts fail to deliver on their promise.
Achieve something extraordinary. Make your vision a reality.
In this little black book, change experts Paul Adams and Mike Straw draw on decades of experience and real–world business case studies to help you change minds, engage people and deliver exceptional results:
- Shift the way people think and behave
- Adopt the seven steps to transformation
- Overcome challenges to deliver results
- Create a bold new future for your organization
- Think creatively and work through discomfort
Transformation is not for the faint–of–heart! Navigating through uncharted territory requires a clear purpose, a will to succeed and the belief and desire to solve the most difficult of challenges. This is your handy guide to a new and brighter future.
