Praise for The Truth About Thriving in Change
“Although we know that change is constant, we are always surprised by it. Bill provides a roadmap to successfully navigate corporate change. Being conscientious to follow the ‘Truths’ will enable people to successfully face any organizational challenge.”
Rosina Racioppi, President and Chief Operating Officer, WOMEN Unlimited, Inc.
"A must read for managers, Bill uses language with care, economy, and precision. Managing change is basically about helping people deal with uncertainty. This writing effectively uses a combination of practical experience, common sense, and humor in describing strategies designed to achieve desired results while maintaining morale and enhancing engagement."
Michael Mimnaugh, Vice President, Human Resources, Sony Corporation of America
"Many students are under the impression that a graduate degree will impart all wisdom, but what they fail to recognize is that there is no substitute for experience. What Bill's book does so well is to impart his substantial experience--along with the textbook knowledge--to move you ahead in your career. If you manage people or projects, the wisdom found within each 'Truth' will help keep you on the leading edge of your profession. This is a reference guide that belongs in your library."
Stuart J. Lipper, Senior Director of MBA Programs, Rutgers Business School, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
