Book by Dr. Barbara Trautlein



Are you frustrated that no matter what you try, your change initiatives seem to either fail outright or produce gains that don't last? The reality is that as many as 70% of organizational change efforts fall short of expectations. Yet, your team's impact and your career progress hinge on your ability to lead successful and sustainable change.

In this dynamic program, you will get beyond the buzzwords and leverage a proven formula for change. The CQ® System for Developing Change Intelligence® is based on decades of leading transformational change across diverse industries, years of conducting global research on managing change, and study into the psychology and neuroscience of change. Through highly interactive exercises and real-life examples, you will learn how to:

  • Become a more agile leader by learning tactics to influence up, collaborate cross-functionally, and motivate direct reports to forge partnerships up, down, and across the organization.
  • Diagnose and develop your own Change Intelligence and build the CQ of the people and teams you lead.
  • Emerge as a more competent and confident - and less stressed and frustrated - leader of change.
