Everybody knows that change can be difficult. Sometimes you feel yourself stuck going round in circles as you revisit the same challenges again and again. But there is a way to change things and it doesn’t have to be complicated.

In this highly practical book, Dave Corbet and Ian Roberts show just how quickly you can move forward once you recognize that the key to change is not your know-how understanding how to make change happen in theory but your do-how the shifts in behaviour that will deliver the changes you want, whether this be at home or work.

Dispensing with academic jargon, and illustrated throughout with real-life examples and case studies, the book draws together diverse aspects of change into one simple, tried-and-tested roadmap, allowing you to develop the do-how you need to achieve breakthrough change: change that sticks, and delivers results.


In a world where we are overwhelmed with knowledge, this book actually equips you with the insights, inspiration and tools to turn knowledge into reality.
Dave and Ian s approach is different and is a very effective way of stimulating you into thinking more about your own strengths and weaknesses and what you are trying to achieve.

Few books on change tell you that real change comes from deeply reflective work on yourself. Even fewer books tell you how to get to that hidden inner coalface and how to dig out the coal of real change. These authors are deeply experienced practitioners and this book does. Do the reflective exercises. Your growth will come from that effort.

This book is a must-read for all 'can do, will do' organisations. It condenses complex change theory into straightforward, effective actions.

In the Jack Nicholson film As Good as it Gets , his character Melvin says 'I'm drowning here, and you're describing the water!' For years in work and in life I'd been describing the water and then I made a breakthrough thanks to a greater appreciation of those do-how moments.
