Just about every positive event in history came about because people changed the circumstances around them for the better – for themselves and for the world. Deep personal change requires a psychologically astute, well-conceived and systematic program, as offered by change management consultant Damian Hughes. His 10-step agenda tells you where to begin and how to proceed. getAbstract recommends it to anyone who wants to embark on personal change.

In this summary, you will learn

  • Why personal change requires adjusting your behavior,
  • Why you must know exactly what you want to change,
  • How to avoid “change blindness” and
  • How to follow the 10 steps of a successful change program.

Time for a Change

To create change, you must modify your behavior or influence the appropriate people in your life to change their behavior. This requires understanding why you do things, the way you do them and why targeted people, often your closest colleagues, relatives or friends, operate as they do.
