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.
