Transforming Leadership is an outgrowth and extension of Transforming Work, acknowledging and exploring the crucial role of the organizational leadership in transformational change. This was the first practical guide for organizational leaders who wished to implement the concepts of "vision," "alignment," "work spirit," and "purpose" in their organizations. This Second Edition contains the original 20 chapters, plus the authors' reflections on their work at the turn of the century. John D. Adams, Ph.D. is a professor, speaker, author, consultant, and seminar leader. He has been at the forefront of the Organization Development and Transformation profession for over 35 years. His early articulation of issues facing organizations has provided a guiding light for the evolution of organization and change management consulting. Adams currently serves as the Chair of the Organizational Systems Ph.D. Program at the Saybrook Graduate School (San Francisco), and is a guest faculty member at The Bainbridge Island Graduate Institute in the MBA in Sustainability program. He also served as editor for two seminal works, Transforming Work and Transforming Leadership, both widely held as defining a new role for the Organization Development profession in a rapidly transforming world.
