'How to be a Change Superhero is a must-read for change practitioners who wish to succeed. It is a compact and invaluably pragmatic guide to managing successful change - and we all know how hard that is! Lucinda brings a fresh and pragmatic approach to the subject. While she reveals learnings from her favourite academics and experts, and covers the process and structure of change, the main value of this excellent book is how it covers the critical subject of people - how to motivate, how to communicate, how to listen, how to empathise, how to corroborate to deliver the change you need. I loved it!' - Campbell Macpherson, author of The Change Catalyst (2017), 2018 Business Book of the Year, British Business Book Awards 'How to be a Change Superhero is a wonderfully pragmatic guide for anyone involved in organizational or business change. The book covers the role of the individual in change, giving a practical insight into how people react and invariably providing grounded, realistic advice on how best to deal with the inevitable tricky reactions that tend to happen as people interact. There are a lot of books covering the theory of change, but this is a rare foray into a more practical approach, and an excellent one at that. Whilst there is no shortage of real-life examples dropped in there is also coverage of some of the classic theories in this space, always explained in an accessible fashion.' - David D'Souza, Membership Director of the CIPD; Fellow of the Learning Performance Institute, the Centre for Evidence-Based Management 'Change happens. We all know it and we're either causing change, or we're being affected by it. This is true in life and especially in organizations. Lucinda Carney takes the reality of organizational change and gives it definition and form so that we can lead change instead of being its victim. This book is solid from its first word until its last. You need to have a copy of this book sitting at the ready so that you can be the Change Superhero you were meant to be!' - Steve Browne, author of HR On Purpose: Developing Deliberate People Passion (2017) 'The only constant is change, as every Leader and HR professional knows. But it's not always an easy process and this book gives you everything you need and much more to be a highly effective catalyst for change and make lasting organisational improvements. Lead the change you seek and do it in an informed and effective manner as a fully charged Change Superhero.' - Ruth Cornish, CEO, Amelore Consulting 'Change can be painful - we've all had it thrust upon us at some point or have been on the receiving end of a badly implemented change management process. Drawing on her years of experience in the field of change, Lucinda has demystified what is required for successful change to happen. Bursting at the seams with theories and concepts made relevant and digestible, Lucinda's engaging tone and pace means that you whizz through each chapter, absorbing practical and realistic advice as you go. This is going to be in the well-thumbed and highlighted section of my bookcase!' - Jo Keeler, Managing Partner, Belbin
