What Our Readers Are Saying . . . 

“What makes Leading Change Training stand out from other manuals with similar content is the section on The Journey Through Change. While many manuals provide some kind of cycle of change to refer to, Leading Change Training goes further and gives detailed actions that should be taken during each phase of the journey. For our organization, change management needs to be more than acknowledging that change is difficult, it must go further in helping guide our Leaders through the process of understanding how to “manage” that change. This book gives relevant and detailed insight into that process. As a change management professional I feel this manual is a step above much of what I have read before.”
-€” Heather Edwards, Time-Warner Cable

“RCI’s Leading Change model has provided us with important insights into the effects and challenges of change, and has enabled our organization to begin to successfully implement the changes we need to make, in order to become the organization we want to be. They provide a realistic and yet creative approach to leading change that is specific and clear, but also mindful of the big picture. I have relied on their Leading Change material again and again to help successfully guide our organization forward.”
-€” Lynn Chisholm, Organizational Development Specialist

“Wow! This book is like having your own personal OD consultant! It offers not only the ‘how’ of a program on leading change, but also an insightful and helpful look at the why, when, and where. This book can save your company hours of design and development time . . . plus build your own skills as a change agent.”

“This book is filled not only with principles and concepts, but also with specific suggestions for implementation. I suggest that both HRD professionals and line managers read the book and work together when implementing change.”
