|As a challenging 2010 winds down, look forward to 2011 with resolve and hope
for change. Imagine that future possibilities are greater than the disappointments of the past and the challenges of the present.
Here are some thoughts on change. I hope they inspire you, too, as you chart a course for 2011 and beyond for your organizations and yourselves.
