Rick Maurer provides leaders who want to lead change the expertise to help them identify even deeply hidden resistance and turn that opposition into support. Rick’s approach to leading change is unique. He focuses on two fundamental questions: Why do people support us? Why do people resist us or our ideas?

Rick and I discussed effective leadership as a consultant and from within as an executive, mastery in a corporate setting, how the energy and momentum of change is similar to martial arts, and even touch on lessons learned in hiking the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim and dog sledding in Alaska!
