The leader is the linchpin—the principal gear—for change. “Change management” is simply about leadership. Management’s most critical role is that of “change agent”–creating the pathways and vision that enable people inside an organization to change the way work gets done to improve results. Our popular workshop, Leading Change, explores the natural cycle of change and our personal relationship to change situations.
