Fighting Fear with Facts: Change Management is Never Easy!

We’re scared lately — of global warming, of terrorism, of changes in health care, of potential tax hikes in the face of the looming budget deadline.

Zombie hordes figured prominently in the 2012 US election hoo-ha. We had the general Halloween zombie cartoons about brainless followers of the wrong candidate.
