As much of the world struggles to deal with economic uncertainty, there are several markets experiencing unprecedented growth.

Moreover, research indicates that change programs fail to deliver substantial benefits in 66 percent of cases.

In particular, Vorhauser-Smith will contribute to the discussion by addressing the neuroscience involved with leading change.
