Designing & Leading Change

This presentation explores seven central challenges of change and the principles and practices that assure success in navigating a change process. David and his colleague Gisela Wendling, Ph.D., have developed an approach that integrates the necessary outer structures of change with perspective on the inner dynamics that arise within times of change. These ideas reflect practical application of post-modern practices in dialogic organization development theory. This presentation is informed by the forthcoming book by Sibbet and Wendling, Visual Consulting: Design & Leading Change, to be published by Wiley & Sons.
