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
