Recently a colleague recounted a story from an event she attended, which was preceded by a cocktail party. She lamented that an hour of inane conversation felt like an eternity and that everyone in the room probably could have made better use of the time by doing something else.

Only 30 per cent of change succeeds, say authors Kendall Lyman and Tony Daloisio – and a 70 per cent failure rate would be unacceptable outside the ranks of leadership.
