About the Book

Change is at the core of human essence. The simplest definition of change is to make different. Human essence isn’t so simple to define. Aristotle referred to it as to ti esti, “the what it is.” As such, change makes different what is.

Many experts now assert the number one task of leaders is simply to manage change. Yet managing change is anything but simple. Leading change is even more difficult.

Maximizing value in this environment requires leadership—and not yesterday’s authoritarian style of leadership, but leadership at a higher level that connects with both the heart and the mind.
