About the Author:

Douglas O’Loughlin runs Joy of Learning Consultants, which he started in Singapore in 1993. He fortuitously entered the world of facilitation more than 20 years ago while working at AT&T in the U.S., and has since facilitated workshops in more than 20 countries. His expertise is to consult, design and facilitate sessions in areas such as change, leadership/ team/ organization development, expansive/ dynamic thinking, strategic planning, and facilitation. He is also an adjunct facilitator and coach with the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), an Associate with Harthill Consulting, and is involved with learning communities all over the world. Douglas lectured at the Singapore Institute of Management for 10 years in various subjects that start with “O” (Organization Behavior, Development, Effectiveness, and Theory). He is currently doing a PhD in Organization Development, researching how the field of adult developmental psychology can accelerate leadership development. Douglas also lectures in the Masters of Management and Organization Development, at Assumption University in Bangkok. Originally from the New York/New Jersey area in the U.S., he currently resides in both Singapore and Bangkok. He is married to Christy and they are joyfully engaged in supporting each other and working together. They don’t have any children or pets, but they share their life with a magical character named Drax the Dragon.

Transformation-- the distinct shift into a markedly better mindset or behavior by a work team at any level--is that almost magical breakthrough all managers and change facilitators aspire for but seldom consciously achieve. In this practical but pathfinding book, Douglas O Loughlin shares 12 key strategies from his deep and extensive experience into the alchemy of achieving that critical shift for better performance.
