My good friend and business associate Simon Phillips heads up the Change Maker Group and I am delighted to share that Simon and 11 other members have just produced a great book based on their extensive knowledge and experience. Their book ‘Change Wisdom’ is available in Kindle and paperback formats on Amazon - click here to view. I believe it is a valuable resource for anyone who needs to help their organisation be ‘change fit’ .
