The Art of Leadership


We are pleased announce that Professor Michael Tushman won two awards from the Academy of Management this year. We're thrilled for Mike, and honored to be the organization that applies his and Charles O'Reilly's research with leading companies globally.
For those of you who are trying to set up Explore Units, we have some key insights from Bruce Harreld's Harvard Business Review webinar  "How to Drive Risk out of Your Growth Initiatives". Harreld is a Harvard lecturer, former SVP of Strategy for IBM, and friend of Change Logic.


Change Logic Principal, Kristin von Donop, will be speaking at the Compliance and Ethics Institute in October.  Additionally, we highlight the lessons of a transformational leader, Ingrid Johnson.
