Customer Reviews:

 

"I agree with Dr Victor Tan that the key aim of leaders today is to win hearts and change minds to get people to change fast enough before it is too little, too late. I believe this is probably the first change management book in the world where the significant lessons of change are exquisitely crystallised into poems that rhyme all the way to make them distinctive and memorable. This is truly a powerful book whose time has come and I shall make it a compulsory reading for all the leaders in my organisation."
