Jerald W. Young, Ph.D.
Dr. Young has a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Change
from Yale University. He has consulted with organizations
undergoing various changes for over 20 years. Before opening
his New York City-based consulting firm, the Center for Stable
Change, and going into consulting full time, he was a management
professor at the University of Florida where he taught Organizational
Behavior and Organizational Change and Development for 21
Personally, he has marched through a generous complement
of change including marriage, divorce, children and stepchildren,
resigning tenure, mid-life career change, geographical relocation,
start-up business, illness and death of loved ones, plus various
irrational "leaps of faith." In his book, Young also draws
upon the experiences of friends and clients who have had similar
"opportunities for growth."
"This book weaves my professional background with my personal
experience of change - when I did it well, when I didn't."
The outcome is a piece of work that provides the missing link
in reversing today's high failure rate of change attempts
