CHANGE OR CHOKE PODCAST

Hear me talk about my adventures and battle through the corporate jungle in my podcast!  This is an 8 part podcast series and each episode is based on one of the chapters in my book.  These episodes will provide further insight into my experience as a consultant specializing in helping companies to manage change associated with internal business alignment.  We’ll be talking about change, how it affects business, and how you can manage it.

FEAR OF CHANGE
