For today’s leaders and managers, the promise of ‘change management’ seems to be everywhere, but unfortunately not how to achieve real change results. That gap is ably filled by the Andersons who use their more than 60 years of combined experience to clearly explain what is needed and how to do it. Their discussions of a multi-dimensional, process-oriented approach for achieving transformational results and what it takes to be a conscious change leader should be required reading in all OD and MBA programs.
