Lillie Brock and I left executive business positions 28 years ago determined to discover why implementing change at work is so difficult. Our plan was to figure that out, write a book and get on Oprah. We figured it out, wrote some books, and are still waiting for Oprah’s call…

We condensed mountains of research data and created the science-based (and user friendly) Change Cycle™ model. It helps people cope with change – at work, at home, in life.

We are honored that The Change Cycle™ materials are available in 9 languages and used worldwide by corporations, organizations, governments, nonprofits, universities, hospitals and school systems.
