Praise for Paige Whitmire’s Book:
Success in the Face of Change
The goal of any book is to have the reader walk away with a memorable experience that they can immediately utilize…This book delivers on both counts - the information is clear, concise and compelling, delivered in a format that is engaging and thought provoking. Presenting the information in the TLC model takes some fairly complex principles and puts them into a simple and straightforward framework that will increase absorption and adoption… Paige also addresses two very common issues facing many corporations today - mergers and the millennial workforce. These issues are timely and relevant to all organizations, regardless of company size, privately held, or publicly traded. I wish that I had read this book a year ago!
- Jeff Meisner, CEO at Skyline, Sector 5 and Sector 5 Digital
This book illuminates the succinct and powerful TLC Leadership Model through a memorable and identifiable scenario that is a call to action for any organization... Ms. Whitmire’s extensive strategy, leadership, psychology and human development experience shine through in this easily digestible roadmap for change.
- Bendita Malakia, Founder of The Malakia Movement
The elements of leadership taken from Success in the Face of Change can be applied to teachers, managers, parents, even husbands and wives. We can all benefit from some TLC.

About the Book
Joe is a business unit leader faced with the ultimate challenge of change as his company enters a merger. The global culture and gaps in Joe's leadership style threaten the health of the organization and possibly the success of the merger. Will Joe and his team be able to embrace the behaviors necessary to survive the merger and achieve their goals? How will shifts in the overall culture have an impact on Joe's effectiveness as a leader? Paige Whitmire's parable describes common behaviors and characteristics individuals often demonstrate during times of change. Through the course of the story, Paige unfolds a back-to-basics approach to leadership. The story shows the necessity of strong leadership during times of intense change. The simple yet highly effective model provides a method for skill development that can be used in any personal or professional setting influenced by change small or large.
Back to Basics Approach to Leadership
Paige Whitmire has published Success in the Face of Change, which describes Cognitive Change’s TLC Leadership Model™. The book is an easy to read parable that follows a business unit leader and his team through a portion of a company merger, focusing on the behaviors and culture through announcement and uncertainty of change. The back to basics approach of building trust, listening and communicating shows the necessity of leadership when we experience change in our lives and can be applied both in and out of the business setting.
“I have a genuine passion for developing, inspiring and empowering others,” says Paige. “I want to see more great ideas come to life and for people to be confident and successful... My focus on change management dates to my experience in corporate America,” says Paige. “The ah-ha moment was realizing that you can have the best strategy in the world, but if the people needed to support the change are not on board, it will never be successful.” “People need basic skill sets to be agile through change and embrace opportunities.
I believe, if you adhere to the foundational principles of trust listen and communicate, you will be successful navigating change in all parts of your life.”
