Overview

In this empowering book, Robert E. Quinn, author of the highly successful and influential Deep Change, gives readers the courage to use personal transformation to positively impact their home life, work life, and communities — to be what he refers to as "inner-directed and outer-focused." We are all potential change agents, but most of us are trapped by belief that we as individuals cannot make a difference. Informed by the teachings of Jesus, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. — three of the most successful change agents ever — Quinn outlines eight steps each of us can take to move ourselves and others to the highest levels of excellence. Following his advice, each of us can access and apply the power that lies within us in ways that will change our world for the better.

Inner directed and Outer Focused Amazon recommended this book to me since I purchased Jackie Robinson: My Own Story and I've just been so inspired by it all. As I read Quinn's 8 priciples for personal and organization change, I actually had one of those "doh!" moments that wrapped together the thoughts that "I know this already, why did I have to read a book to have it click?" and "right book at the right time!" In a clear, articulate, and insightful manner, Robert Quinn guides you to a better understanding of how everyone can enact positive change. While he used Martin Luther King and Ghandi as examples of ordinary people achieving the extraordinary, I had Jackie Robinson in mind as well!
