Leading Change is different from Managing Change. Perhaps due to my life-long reluctance to duck a challenge - I was given the hardest problems to solve. I lead business turnarounds, startups and closures, for decades! So, I learnt Leadership from being the Leader charged with effecting significant change in companies large and small. I was fortunate to work with Mentors who helped me transform working practices, successfully enter new markets and achieve success quickly. We did this not through managing change but rather by leading change. Knowing the difference Change Leadership can make to people is even more relevant today with the major challenges we face simply employing people at a time of dramatic change in our workspace.
I now want to help others who seek to become successful Leaders avoid some of the pitfalls that can easily slow down or even derail the execution of change where we work. I was never good at asking permission from those who had no clue how to solve a problem. That led me to Change Leadership and forced me to discover new ways to develop and execute change - often against resistance from employees, managers and even head office.
Transforming an organisation is not easy and invariably difficult for people, who all too often are kept in the dark until it's too late. Change Leadership is about placing people at the centre of change and taking responsibility for their people.
Leaders are expected to achieve change successfully, quickly and often in a difficult environment. I was lucky always to have a Mentor to share my concerns and give me support. Here are just four who helped me up that steep mountain.

mr alex's New Book
"Firstly, I’m not a big reader, but 'it does matter' kept me gripped, and I’d read 4/5 chapters before I knew about it. It flows really well; you write with effect, respect and, more importantly, honesty, not being scared to share the lows with the highs; it makes the book such a good read. Each chapter builds more suspense than the last; I kept thinking - what the hell is he going to do now that’s just happened?
The whole experience of reading a book written by my Dad is something that very few Sons will have.
I laughed out loud, how you got out of problems! You went for a Sunday morning stroll
in a strange town and ended up with a new job! The Piper's March at your special Scottish Evening,
oh... and the Polish Whisky Tasting Event - what was going to happen next!
You inspired me from a business point of view; you’ve always told me to get back on my bike and learn
why I fell off. Congratulations on your book Dad, you wrote it with true respect for those who helped you along that road less travelled."
