About the Book


Changing an organization, company culture or mind-set depends on knowing what to change, how to change, and, most importantly, why to change.

Author Dean Gualco, public speaker and the owner of Torgun Consulting, explores how organizations and individuals can initiate, manage, and capitalize on change in this instructive guidebook. He explains ways to

• recognize when it makes sense to change;
• create a framework to manage change effectively;
• harness imagination and originality to outpace competitors; and
• encourage colleagues to embrace necessary change.

Too often, change is viewed through a prism of conflict and negativity. Millions of people have lost their jobs because of changing technology, and others have lost their health and retirement benefi ts as organizations have cut costs. We find ourselves in a world where older people can’t retire and younger people can’t find jobs.

But avoiding or hindering change won’t solve anything; instead, it’s important to tackle it head-on. In Making a Difference, you can discover how pursuing the right dreams at the right time and for the right reasons can change your life.
