Check out the feature of this book in the Alberta Provincial HR Organization (CPHR AB) Magazine!! As well as in the HRD (Human Resources Director) Canada, a premier Canadian publication:

The ability to help an organization effectively deal with change is a key competency that all HR professionals must possess. However, many people in the HR function have not received any formal training or instruction on how to fulfill this key role. Further, HR professionals are often paralyzed or frustrated by senior management attitudes and practices, thereby feeling left out of the change process entirely or powerless within it. This book provides HR professionals with key resources and concepts to successfully launch, implement and maintain change management initiatives within their organizations. Practical tools and explanations will illuminate critical change management competencies and processes thereby enabling HR professionals to take on strategic and active roles as they guide and lead employees, at all levels throughout an organization, to successfully deal with change. Further, understanding of one’s own reactions to change and how to harness this energy will also be explored to further assist HR professionals to effectively manage and guide change. Key questions posed at the end of each chapter allow for personal reflection and growth, further allowing for development of skills relating to change management. This book serves as an excellent resource to HR students, those new to practicing HR and seasoned HR professionals alike.
