Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):


Is your team thriving in a world of relentless and rapid change?

From the New York Times bestselling author of SmartTribes and Rules for Renegades comes a potent set of neuroscience-based tools to empower your team in uncertain times.

Whether it’s diminished sales, increased competition, or corporate restructuring, change is a natural part of doing business in today’s high-speed, information-overload, instant-response environment. But inherent in human nature is resistance to change—a basic emotional response that is well-documented by neuroscience. In this groundbreaking guide, top leadership consultant and employee engagement expert Christine Comaford shows you how to bring your tribe together to tackle any challenge head-on. Using her simple, proven strategies, you’ll be able to:

* Meet the demands of changing markets, customers, and competitors

* Adapt to new management, restructuring, and other corporate shakeups

* Spark innovation and teamwork in the workplace—and keep it burning

* Empower your people to embrace change as a new opportunity for growth

Filled with case studies and all-too-familiar examples, this book will enable you to release resistance to change, build more emotionally agile teams, and mobilize the entire organization quickly and efficiently toward a clear and common goal. By training and empowering your team members to shift their emotional states—and see the positive potential of change—you can lead your tribe through any challenge and ensure success for years to come. 


Foreword by Marshall Goldsmith


PART I: What Happens Inside When Change Happens Outside

1. How Human Beings Experience the World
We decide whether an experience is “good” or “bad,” and the meaning we assign to our experience creates and reinforces our identity, beliefs, capabilities, and behavior.

2. The Three Things All Humans Crave
Resilient teams have three key ingredients: safety, belonging, and mattering.

PART II: The Power Your Tribe Playbook: Learn to Love Change

3. Release Resistance

To shift your state and create choice, we’ll find your starting point. Resistance reinforces the Present State, which is where the problem is. Learn how to release resistance so you can have more choice. 
Tools: Emotion Wheel, Maneuvers of Consciousness, Outcome Frame

4. Increase Rapport with Yourself

To live in a state of emotional agility more consistently, we need to build certain mental muscles of self-awareness. We do so by increasing emotional rapport with oneself and stilling the constant chatter of our mind.  

Tools: Organismic Rights, Parts Process, Mindfulness Meditation

5. Make New Meaning

Shakespeare was right: nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so. Learn how to choose your response to what happens to you, and the story you want to tell about it. 

Tools: Reframing, Distorted Thinking Decoder, Neuro Storytelling

6. Anchor the Outcome You Want

Now that you have choice, what exactly would you like? Once you figure out what you want, you can help others do the same. A clear Desired State combined with potent sensory anchors can make all the difference.

Tools: VAK Anchoring, Outcome Frame

7. Enroll and Engage Others

Forge your emotional agility strategy with others; enroll, align, and engage even the most challenging types to help you create the needed change.

Tools: SBM Behavior Decoder, SBM Communication, SBM Index, Meta Programs

8. Build Tribal Agility

Help your team build trust and keep the change going, and increase emotional agility in yourself and others. 

Tools: Three-Minute Journal; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Structures; Cognitive Bias Navigation, Borderline Behavior Quiz, Borderline Behavior Decoder, Borderline Behavior Navigation, Cultural GAME Plan 

9. Expand Tribal Power

Help your tribe navigate any obstacle, thrive on feedback, and redefine their personal best. 

Tools: Energetic Weight, Energy Recall, Myelination Practice, Feedback Frame, Four Conversations, Seven-Step Feedback Frame
