Overview
Our organizations are in trouble. Beset on all sides by pressure: competitive pressure, market pressure, social pressure, and just plain pressure pressure. As we look at the people in these organizations we see them rotating in a busy, helpless dance - the Jig of Despair - desperately trying to improve the way things are done but constrained by the way things are done.

About the author
David Firth is an organizational development consultant, a business writer, a published author, and a noted conference speaker. He specializes in human change – how it’s both desired and resisted – and how change can be effectively accomplished in the workplace. He is intrigued by corporate cultures. Like a business anthropologist, he brings a healthy curiosity to the fascinating forms of engagement between leaders and followers, managers and workers. Through his corporate coaching and organizational development consulting, he helps companies and teams create amazing visions for what’s possible. He then helps implement the strategies to make the visions real. David is a graduate of Oxford University with an MA in English Language & Literature. In the summer of 2008, he also embraced change by moving from the UK with his wife and family to settle in Loveland, Colorado.  He has been an organizational development consultant and motivational keynote speaker for more than 20 years.
