About This Website

The goal of this Website is to become a helpful resource for you as you address issues of change. We will do this in three ways:

  1. By providing tools you can use for your own work in leading and managing change. We only ask that you give us credit when using the tools. We hope you will also remember to access these tools from our Website as you travel, and have the need to remind yourself of key change concepts.
  2. By pointing out key resources, that we deem effective in learning to lead and manage change. These will include books, audio and video tapes and case material. We will only show materials we think are very good or excellent and recommend you consider. We receive no remuneration from recommending these materials, they are things that we have found most helpful in our consulting practice and our students in my Leading Change Program have found very helpful too.
  3. By pointing you to other Websites that have significant value either in providing free materials on change or where you can buy quality tools and materials.

You will also find a good deal of material on leadership and teams in this Website, because we believe leadership is the key engine of change and teams are a critical vehicle for breaking down the boundaries in organizations that block change.

Please visit us frequently, we will be updating this regularly, adding more free material, as well as, additional recommendations on resources. We aim to make this a quality Website, not pointing you to everything, but to quality resources. You don't need to waste time as you search the Web for help in addressing change issues. We welcome your feedback on our Web Page and suggestions for additions, you can email us at the address shown.
