Change and uncertainty aren't going away. You can help your team navigate the storm and embrace them.

In The Change Mindset, leadership development expert Andy Craggs unpicks the main reasons why teams fail when it comes to dealing with change and navigating uncertainty. He defines the common traps that lead to failure; from not allowing yourself to reimagine the possible, mimicking the behaviour that your competition has shown when dealing with change, to doubting yourself and your team. Leading through change requires business leaders to be courageous and to show empathy, both for themselves and their people. With those attributes, this book, which is steeped in behavioural and organizational psychology analysis, catapults you to developing meaningful and long-lasting adaptability and resilience in the face of uncertainty.

Join the author in his exploration of transitions, and hear from world-renowned business, academia, arts and social enterprise leaders who share their own dealings with change. They show us the way in how they have grown to manage change for themselves and the people around them.
