Reviews

'This engaging and highly-readable book provides an innovative approach to one of the biggest challenges facing business today: managing relentless change. It offers a range of practical insights and tools which for me, makes it essential reading.' -- Keith Jackson Former CRO, Bupa Group 'The Thrive Cycle explores what it means to be an Adaptive Organisation in an ever-changing world. A highly relevant and timely contribution to the science and art of change leadership'. -- Richard Umbers CEO and Managing Director; Myer 'The Thrive Cycle is an actionable, easy to read guide to making positive change happen in complex organisations. Written by a seasoned change practitioner, this book is essential reading for C-suite and senior managers who are tasked with leading change and ensuring their business adapts to, and thrives in, an increasingly uncertain environment'. -- Tom Singer Former CFO, InterContinental Hotels Group 'Sometimes I read a business book and wonder how the author managed to pad out 250 pages with what is essentially one idea - but this book is different. The Thrive Cycle is chock full of sensible, practical tools borne out of real world experience and anchored in customer-centricity and employee engagement. Importantly, it shows how to achieve what is for many businesses 'the impossible dream' - being big and adaptive'. -- Chris Smedley CEO, Assure 'An invaluable read for leaders who want to make their organisations healthier and sustainable; indispensable reflection for those who think their organisation does not need to adapt...and a survival kit for those who consider themselves victims of change'. -- Domenec Crosas Director General, Sanitas Mayores 'The Thrive Cycle shows step by step, how to triumph when faced with the significant challenge of leading change in complex businesses. It is a must-read for executives and senior managers with responsibility for delivering sustainable results in constantly changing environments'. -- Di Fulton - Non-Executive Director, CoInvest 'So many "a-ha" moments in The Thrive Cycle for any leader who has experienced major organisational change.
