Learn How to Turn Change into Opportunity

“Change is not merely necessary to life—it is life.” –Alvin Toffler

In this FranklinCovey book on responding to change, explore your own experiences with change using a river journey parable as a point-of-reference. Take this voyage and discover timeless principles and timely results from an industry leader who has helped numerous organizations turn disruptive change into individual and collective opportunity.         

Who Rocked the Boat? We all travel along various rivers in life, which means at any moment we can find ourselves navigating their uncertainty—whether a global pandemic, a new boss, a shift in employment, business restructuring, a new role on a team, starting a new course in school, a new business strategy, the birth of a child, divorce, or responding to a setback on a project or personal goal.

Shift happens! Change is going to happen. It’s a fact of life. Understanding your reactions and making good choices could make the difference between capitalizing on an opportunity or resisting and missing an important chance.

The FranklinCovey Change Model. While every change is unique, there is a predictable pattern to change, and understanding this pattern and building the skills to navigate it is often the difference between success and failure. The FranklinCovey Change Model provides the structure necessary to orient, ground, and gain clarity about change. Then, like the ship’s crew in the river journey parable, we can use the model as a map to chart our way forward: making key decisions, adopting new behaviors, and building ideal conditions for innovation. Today, with change coming at us in fast and increasingly disruptive ways, understanding The Change Model is more important than ever.


If books such as Together Is Better by Simon Sinek, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, or Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson have been valuable, you will want to read Who Rocked the Boat?
