'CHANGE HAPPENS' - NEW BOOK BY LOCAL AUTHOR LAUNCHES MARCH 30

Victoria-based expert's new book 'Change Happens - Your Guide to Navigating Change Using The 5C Model,' New Boook Offers Practical Guidance for Leading Organizational Change

Attention: Books Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Education Editor VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - North American publisher Authenticity Press is pleased to announce its latest book, Change Happens - Your Guide to Navigating Change Using The 5C Model,' will be available during its global launch on March 30, 2011 exclusively through Amazon.com and changehappenseveryday.com. The book was written by Victoria-based author and business management expert Beth Page, founder of Dream Catcher Consulting. Page is also Associate Faculty, teaching in the MBA and Master of Arts in Leadership programs at Royal Roads University.
Change Happens is filled with practical guidance for achieving successful change using the proprietary 5C Model©, which Page developed in her earlier book, Done Deal (Authenticity Press 2006). In Change Happens, the 5C Model becomes the framework for a deeper exploration of the challenges and opportunities associated with business change, including strategies for building trust and honoring employees' participation and ownership in the process.
Change Happens also explores the potential pitfalls of change initiatives, enabling readers to enhance their familiarity and adeptness for avoiding culture-destroying activities, addressing lost company productivity and employee cynicism, while cultivating effective communication, knowledge and information-sharing.
"This book was written for anyone who's ever grappled with the thousands of details necessary to achieve successful, sustained change, and had to address the employee resistance behind the question, 'why does this even matter?'," said Page. "Change Happens is rich with tools and tips for leveraging the invaluable employee involvement while successfully navigating change."

Book Launch Gift and Donation
According to Page, readers who purchase Change Happens on its March 30 launch day at www.changehappenseveryday.com will also receive the complementary Change Leaders Toolkit, an exclusive compilation of change-related articles and resources that includes:

* A Competency Leader's Assessment from Patwell Consulting

Page also will be contributing 10 percent of all first day's sales of Change Happens to benefit the Cowichan Valley Hospice Society and the International Red Cross, for relief efforts in the wake of the recent catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
