Change effects all, the difference is how we deal with it
The job roles and people involved in management and leadership workshops are so varied that there is no 'one style fits all' for all approach to the subject.

The question to ask at the moment is - Has another asteroid hit us? The latest phrases to arrive out of the current world-wide crises is 'New Capitalism' and Change Management. So, what does this mean and how has our Sub-prime asteroid affected our world today?
There is a lot of speculation that the culture of greed, that has been instrumental in getting us into this current crisis, will be swept away, with a move towards more empathetic and conscientious styles of team working 'kinder, gentler, less divisive, less of a casino in which the winner takes all' The BBC's Robert Peston, 8th December 2008.
