Abstract

The ability to manage complexity and master change has never been more important, given our fastpaced, non-stop lives. The first step is to understand the built-in mechanisms that make change so difficult, and which serve as the source of our natural resistance when faced with something new. Based on this we can distill five characteristics, or CHANGE-abilities, that enable us to better adapt to whatever the world throws our way. Finally, we can learn and apply specific strategies and tactics to enhance our CHANGE-ability.
