The Leadership in Action Series: On Leading in Times of Change

The ongoing state of many contemporary organizations is one of change. The pace and complexity of change contribute to intense emotions that play out both inside and outside organizations. The leader's challenge in dealing with change is to recognize and understand the patterns of response that people express as they learn their way through transition and to customize intervention strategies that help individuals move forward in the changing environment. This collection of sixteen pieces—written by the Center for Creative Leadership's highly experienced and knowledgeable faculty members and researchers as well as by prominent practitioners and scholars in the fields of leadership and leadership development—explores the important topic of leading through transition from a number of angles.
