Your Personal Guide to Leading Change

Change is an inevitable part of today’s organizational life. To survive as a leader you must develop the skills that will mobilize your constituents to do important work no matter how fast the world around you is changing.

Leading in a Culture of Change Personal Action Guide and Workbook is an essential companion to Michael Fullan’s bestselling book, Leading in a Culture of Change. This practical guide is designed to help leaders in all sectors (corporate, education, public, and nonprofit) manage and drive productive change within their organizations.

The workbook is filled with illustrative case examples, exercises, and resources that you can use with individuals or groups. It will help you (and any change agent) integrate the five core competencies–attending to a broader moral purpose, keeping on top of the change process, cultivating relationships, sharing knowledge, and setting a vision and context for creating coherence in organizations–and empower you to deal with the issues of complex change.

Leading in a Culture of Change Personal Action Guide and Workbook includes

  • Practical tools–cases, activities, action steps, resources–that go a long way to helping leaders implement change in organizations
  • Questions that stimulate the application of concepts, techniques, and possibilities
  • Summaries of key points, personal assessment exercises, and discussion points
  • An easy-to-use format that has plenty of space for notes and lies flat for photocopying

Once you have worked through this book you will have developed a deep understanding that will be a benefit to you personally and professionally.
