What I Like to talk About

How we make the difficult task of Change even more difficult, by making false assumptions about how, and why, people 'resist' Change. The primary goal is always to provide audience members insights that they can apply, to good effect, immediately after the presentation. I've worked in this field for more than 30 years, spoken in 40+ countries and published several thousand articles.
