Creating Systems of Transformation through Continuous Improvement
Financial crises, natural disasters, technological advancements, industry disruption—while it may feel like our society is facing unprecedented times, leaders throughout history have been confronted with the imperative for change.
While this has given rise to numerous systems dedicated to change management, why is it that so many organizations still falter and even fail in the face of change?
In Capturing Change, Dr. Alex Johnson exposes the counterproductive flaws of prevailing change management methodologies, which leave leaders unable to effectively implement and sustain change initiatives. Despite much anticipation and planning, many struggle to adapt their organizations, team members, and consumers to the anxieties and disruptions of a new normal.
Building upon the “Uninterrupted Cycle of Leadership Effectiveness (UnCLE)” introduced in his acclaimed 2018 book Change the Lapel Pin, Johnson offers new ideas and solutions to change management issues that challenge new and experienced leaders alike.
Capturing Change provides the framework for becoming a “leader of transformation”—who will not just overcome the challenges of change but will harness it as an essential and welcome component of a healthy organization that’s built to last.
