-Gina M Donaldson, Global Consulting Firm, Senior Managing Consultant, Strategy and Transformation

"In Change Happens: Your Guide to Navigating Change Using the 5C Model, Beth Page provides far more than a discussion of organizational change. Beth generously shares her 5C model, developed over eight years of consulting and partnering with organizations. This book explains each of the dimensions of change and gives reflection questions and action steps to empower us to successfully navigate or lead change from any point in the process. The elegance of this model is demonstrated by integrating the power of honoring relationships and values, and bringing employees into the initiative early and keeping them engaged throughout the process. Further to giving us a model to navigate change, Beth enhances our opportunity for success by explaining where a change initiative might have become stuck and offering simple solutions to get it back on track. In a book that is as important to leaders as it is to HR professionals, consultants and employees, Beth has eloquently inspired us to improve our competency, productivity, and success in dealing with change initiatives. As a student of Beth’s I have seen her live the lessons she provides in this book in a spirit of inquiry and curiosity while honoring others and encouraging them to be fully present and engaged."

– Jean Hankel, MA, Canadian Oil and Gas Industry, HR-Learning Transfer
