“The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence –
it is to act with yesterday’s logic.”
– Peter Drucker

Change, as they say, is inevitable. What is not inevitable, however, is a smooth transition to, and acceptance of, change. The good news is that you actually have control over how you affect the transition for your team, your organization, your home life, and yourself. Managing and leading change requires discipline, wisdom, and ultimately, superb communication.


This is a hot topic for Ashlin Associates clients. Change is a consistent and constant variable. From healthcare and retail to energy and manufacturing, industry leaders are grappling with all sorts of transitions. Some are experiencing sudden and high growth while others are downsizing and restructuring. Regulatory changes are rocking the foundations of some industries. Change is in the air.


Managing change isn’t rocket science, but it does require planning and thoughtful leadership. As you lead changes in your own organization, Ashlin Associates encourages you to pause and develop your own change management plan. Consider thoroughly and deliberately the areas and individuals that will be affected by change. By thinking through the repercussions and asking a few simple questions, you can not only manage change, but lead change – to the benefit of your organization, your employees and your customers.

“Please heed the call. Don’t stand in the doorway. Don’t block up the hall. …
For the times, they are a-changing.”
– Bob Dylan
