For leaders at all levels, a new system for building "change intelligence"-- and for creating results that matter at all levels of your organization
In the world of business, the ability to handle constant change makes the difference between success and failure. Today, executives, supervisors, and project managers have plenty of methodologies for managing change, yet the failure rate of major organizational change is still an abysmal 70 percent.
In this innovative guide, Barbara Trautlein argues that this is because our current approaches are inadequate when not used in tandem with a deep understanding of change intelligence, or CQ--the skill set required to lead a team or company through vital transformations. Inside, she gives readers access to a proprietary, interactive CQ assessment that's based on substantial research and experience in working with hundreds of top organizations. And after readers learn their own change leader style, they go on to discover practical strategies for leveraging their strengths and shoring up their weak spots.
Trautlein, a leading authority on change leadership, keeps the theory light and delves into insightful case studies drawn from her decades of experience. Her example-based approach allows readers to plainly see how they can start driving real transformation--not by adopting yet another new tool but by bolstering their own capacity for change leadership.

Few books are both theoretically sound and practical - Edgar Schein comes to mind. Change Intelligence is one of those books. Readers can feel assured that the concepts in the book are based on research and accepted principles in the field. Additionally, Barbara provides practical tools for assessing the practitioner's own change intelligence and that of the client - and ideas and tools for improving this intelligence. I will be suggesting the book to my clients, as well as applying the wisdom of the book to my consulting engagements and coaching assignments.
