Seeing conflict and change as a source for learning might sound nice, but is hard to accept in the realities of our professional lives. Understanding change and how we deal with change on an individual and organisation level, is an important topic for managers, professionals and especially those of us who work in the area of learning and people development. I recommend this book to anyone who is as curious to improve our contribution to individual and organizational development Klaas Wassens, Director Executive Education & Development, RSM Erasmus University We cannot eradicate conflict and we cannot make change painless, but we can learn how to use natural tensions more constructively. This book offers new insights on the human side of change and helps business practitioners to understand that managing change is more than re-engineering a business process.
