Book: Change Has Changed
Author: Sam Chand
Genre: BUSINESS & ECONOMICS /Leadership
Release date: October 19, 2021
The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said change is the only constant in life.
But the world has experienced so much upheaval since January 2020 that change itself has changed! In business, the church, and nonprofits, leaders are being left in the dust as events and challenges speed by in a blur. The pace of change was accelerating before…but the pandemic pressed the pedal to the floor.
“We’re at an inflection point,” says leadership architect and change strategist Sam Chand. “The way things were isn’t the way things will be.”
In his new book Change Has Changed, Sam sets out to help leaders understand the evolving nature of change so that they can guide their organizations with wisdom and confidence.
He examines three major shifts that he likens to three simultaneous earthquakes:
- Our environment has changed. People are working from home, many businesses may never reopen, and the way we shop, handle health needs, and even go to church has changed.
- We have changed. We’ve learned to live with rampant uncertainty and a raft full of nagging fears—but our bodies and our souls weren’t meant for this!
- The people around us have changed. They are frustrated, isolated, depressed, anxious, and angry. They just don’t feel safe.
Sam tackles these and related issues head-on by offering lessons that will empower leaders to be ready for the next normal.
“We used to talk about a new normal as if it’s the end point of change,” Sam explains, “but if we’ve learned anything in the past months, it’s that change is perpetual, and we need to anticipate the next one on the horizon.”

The book examines how our economy and other things have changed since the world was hit with COVID-19. It seemed like the world had stopped and no one knew what to do. Businesses were closing, people were losing their jobs, hospitals were bursting at the seams and we looked for direction to help us through this crisis.
Yes we needed guidance and there among us were leaders who were stressed trying to help their workers stay afloat. I remember thinking that life as we know it will never be the same again. Going to the store was impossible at times. Social distancing was required and get togethers were discouraged. What I did notice was that church didn’t stop. We saw many go to streaming their services so people could still attend church even though it was from their home. At least we could see hope rising from the ashes and start to sense that we were not alone anymore.
The author encourages leaders with key principles. He stresses the need to work in unity and learn from each other. Suddenly we saw churches finding ways to reach people and thinking outside the box. The author is passionate about helping leaders and this book is a great tool to use. I thought he had great ideas that can be implemented in churches as well as businesses. I like that he provides questions at the end of each chapter as well as take away points.
I liked when the author said, “The health of the leader determines the health and growth of the organization.” It is important as a leader to find someone who will stand with you, allow you to be transparent and speak truth into your life. I thought the chapter about Personal Care was my favorite. It emphasizes the need to be spiritually, physically and mentally healthy. We can’t do it on our own. That’s why we need to be surrounded by people who are candor, consistent, careful and wise in counsel.
I think this book is a great book for all leaders to read. It has encouraging words as well as sound ideas to change when needed. Not everyone adapts well when change comes, but as a leader you can help others to find hope in the midst of chaos.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
