Throughout my career, I have had the great opportunity to work with leaders, managers and professionals from all over the world who have inspired and influenced my approach to organizational development.

These publications and resources reflect the real work experiences, wise practices and lessons learned from my partners, collaborators, clients and colleagues who have been so generous in sharing their stories of leading managing meaningful change in their work and organizations.
