Bill is the author of Journey to Newland: A Road Map for Transformational Change.

Successful teams and organizations worldwide use the Journey to Newland story as a road map to lead change, manage transition, and transform individuals. The Journey to Newland storybook provides readers with a cast of memorable characters, an engaging story, and a common language to deal with complex and often emotionally sensitive issues in negotiating change within their organizations. This symbolic story follows a group of animal characters through uncharted territory, from Oldland to Newland.

The characters represent various change mindsets and behaviors, how we deal with change, and how others experience us through change. Navigating such metaphorical places as Nostalgia Desert, Transition Valley, and Leverage Lake, the transformer team – comprised of Eagle, Owl, Lion, Dolphin, and Ant – finds a way to survive, even thrive by overcoming resistance and leading change. “Journey to Newland” skillfully and creatively illustrates the process, principles, and capabilities required for successful transformational change.
