Wendy Heckelman has created a sensible and uncomplicated consulting resource on navigating large-scale change that will ensure you incorporate all critical people and process elements. This is a resource that any practitioner will want in their tool kit during both planning and execution.
Change requires everyone—with their individual personalities and abilities—at the grand table and fully engaged. Wendy’s modern-day guide, Change and Thrive, not only reinforces the type of leadership that welcomes inclusion but also, properly recognizes it as a guarantee of better solutions and results. The Coaching chapter, “Guide All Be All,” in particular, is a standout for inclusive leadership!

The only constant in life is change” is attributed to the Greek philosopher Heraclitus. In Change and Thrive, Dr. Heckelman not only acknowledges this reality, but builds an out-of-the-box practical model for organizations to navigate to success.

We all recognize that change is a constant and that we should be more change agile if we want to be recognized as top talent, so I’m grateful to have Wendy’s easy-to-follow roadmap on how to not only make change happen, but to thrive as a successful leader of change.
