“Changing the Mind of the Organization is an inspiring book that provides practical help to managers in a change process. A fascinating combination of different approaches to achieving change in organizations, with insight and tips on motivating the individuals in the process. Occasionally confronting and challenging for the reader him/herself. Often creating a smile of recognition or even laughter with the humorous examples, remarks and quotes.”

Inge Poorthuis MSc., Cognitive Neuropsychologist and Founder at PoorthuisAdvies

 

"In his new book, Chris Martlew expands on the themes of Leadership Recharged! to paint a picture of business leadership with a conscience. He articulates effectively the distinction between leadership and management, and how to effectively lead change.

Changing the Mind of the Organization is a creative and practical guide to agile working with teams in the digital age, which takes account of the way our 'minds' work at the individual, team and organization level, putting in 'just enough process to get by' to support flexible, fast delivery to the customer.

The book describes a range of techniques to get change past the 'obstacles' of people's thought and behaviour patterns, ensuring that your change agenda is aligned with the way people operate.

Chris brings a human touch to change management, getting away from the 'management speak' of some textbooks. His deep experience provides a solid foundation to the practical advice within these pages - a 'Dungeon Master's Guide' for adopting effective agile working across multidisciplinary teams."

Derek Glen, Director, Iorsa Ltd.

       

“In this new book Chris Martlew tickles and challenges our (old) perceptions of change by playfully combining insights from fast moving social developments, human (neurological) evolution and daredevil management insights. Thus creating a refreshing and necessary perspective for new leaders of any kind to help them recognize and meet the challenges and responsibilities they face in the 3rd millennium of new global leadership awareness.” 

 Erik Dirven, Author and Managing Partner at TimeToChange.me

“An enjoyable and stimulating read. The text presents a refreshing view of change leadership and provides a smooth blend of philosophy, psychology, distilled wisdom, and modern spirituality. 

The text is conversational in style, free flowing from situations to ideas and ideas to idea-reinforcing anecdotes. Chris combines an accessible style with sophistication of concept. It’s powerful, direct and thought provoking. There are clear and actionable take-aways which make any management read worthwhile.”
