Powering On Change Management Potential

A “political Nose” à La John Baird Is Useful In Change Management

The unexpected resignation of Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has been front page news here in Canada since yesterday. Baird, who is one of the country’s most recognized (and controversial) public figures, is leaving politics all at once. A quote in this morning’s newspapers got me to think about change management.
