Go beyond better habits and positive thinking. 

Why do people struggle with creating the changes they say they want?  

With over a decade of work with thousands of clients in the fields of organizational consulting, executive coaching and psychotherapy, author Michael Diettrich-Chastain reveals the seven life dimensions that impact our ability to make professional and personal changes...as well as why we succeed at making certain changes and fail at others. 

  • Ever wonder why things aren't going the way you planned? Why things are happening TO you instead of YOU making them happen?

About the Author

"We live in a time of optimized habits, emotional intelligence, peak fitness and the perfect relationship. The challenge here is that we get hung up on one life domain instead of uncovering the influence each has on the other. Instead of trying to improve just one domain, it is paramount to uncover how each domain of our lived experience impacts the success (and failure) of all the changes we attempt to make. CHANGES will help you integrate all domains of your life."
