Seventy percent of all corporate change efforts fail because people resist the change. But there is another way. A way that will enable your change to succeed. That way is captured in this book. This is a guidebook - it reveals the mindset, strategies, and steps to help you lead people from point A to point B.
"Much has been written about managing change, most of it theoretical. What makes this book different is that Peter Bregman is in the trenches. His real life experiences and simple step-by-step guidance make this the most valuable book you'll ever read as you lead people to point B." - Doug Stern, President and CEO, United Media
"If you are responsible for moving people from point A to point B, then read this book! You could probably do it without reading this book, but why wouldn't you want to get it right the first time?" - Philip Weisberg, CEO, FXall
"Point B has given me a simple, useable approach to leading people through change. It's all here in one place. Everything you need to know to execute your strategy by leveraging the skills, wisdom, capability, and energy of the people in your company." - Barbara Kurka, Senior Vice President, Katz Media Group
"If you need to motivate change in others, then you need to read this book. Peter Bregman is a creative thinker, an engaging storyteller and an insightful advisor. Whether you are leading a 100,000 person organization or a small team, following the principles he outlines will give you the confidence and the skills you need to move people from point A to point B." - Dr. Allan Rosenfield, Dean, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health
