We are always experiencing change in the system, personnel and policies are generally in flux. I was seeking material that would be short, to the point and give some brilliant tools to support these clients through the important work they do with change consistently in the picture.
This book is a short read (always a factor for busy, dedicated people) and provides excellent explanations around handling change and the importance of resilience and flexibility. My clients love it and are using it,
I am sad to see that this publication is going out of print. I would appreciate any help anyone may have for me so that I can keep a supply of these books on hand, I have a Team of coaches and we give this book to 10-20 clients a month.
