Change within organizations comes in many forms. It may appear without warning, like a corporate merger, or it may
evolve slowly, the way a disease progresses. Sometimes change results when we find out that something we didn't want to happen has occurred. No matter what form it takes, change stirs strong reactions and reveals growth opportunities. This article provides direction for managers to successfully implement organizational change by aligning attitudes and actions during
change and transition.

- Identify reasons for organizational change and differing leadership approaches used to meet new challenges.
