Whether they are trying to stay relevant at age 60 in a large corporation, coping with a big new job with unfamiliar rules and methods, facing a scary reality that their industry is in danger of becoming extinct, struggling to get donations for their nonprofit in a troubled economy, or, as a result of our current economic crisis, suddenly unemployed and looking for a job, people of all ages and walks of life are scrambling to deal with the vast changes that are happening in every industry, every profession, every part of the world.

We're expected to not only keep up, but find new and creative solutions. We find ourselves in uncharted territory with no road map to follow. Knowing that you need to change, or even wanting to change isn't enough. Without rewiring your thinking at the root and knowing what actions to take, all you get from that is wish and want and, usually - stuckness. We need a revolution in the way we think in order to survive in the future. Rather than simply exhorting people to change, I provide a roadmap for how to actually develop the capacity to change.

    " This was given to me after I experienced a singular event. The book is good, but didn't really apply to my paticular and strange situation. I think that it would be helpful for other people who are experience changes and decision making experiences. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wai-kit | 3/14/2013

    " Started well, but after half way through, the book degenerated. Too bad this book didn't live to its potential. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorna | 6/20/2012

    " We are all more resilient than we think. There's always a gift to be found in what happens to us. Change isn't always positive, but fear is the true challenge of change. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gini Beck | 5/16/2011

    " This was a little gem of a book, some helpful suggestions and a lot of good common sense. I will probably refer back to it in the future for coaching clients. Not life-changing, but good, solid advice. Saw the author in Seattle and she is impressive, down to earth, practical, knowledgable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Vankooten | 8/14/2009

    " A well researched book on change and our relationship with it. The findings are presented in a very casual and understandable way. "
