How to realize your own leadership potential

Based on the bestselling book, Deep Change, The Deep Change Field Guide takes readers through the introspective journey of personal transformation. The field guide streamlines, updates, and augments the content of the original book into an interactive self-teaching course that helps readers learn how to become powerful agents of change. Learning tools include reflection questions, film assignments, and action plans that help readers think about the concepts in terms of their own situations, and identify actions to embody the concepts in their lives.

The field guide has been carefully designed so that individual learners can gain the same benefits that students have long enjoyed in the author's courses, and the learning tools also lend themselves to both the academic and professional classroom.

  • Complements to Robert Quinn's bestselling book Deep Change
  • Includes exercise, reflective questions, and worksheets throughout
  • Provides reader with a "self-help" guide to overcoming the personal and professional obstacles that prevent transformational leadership

For anyone who yearns to be an internally driven leader, to motivate the people around them, and develop a satisfying work life, The Deep Change Field Guide holds the key.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Business school professor Quinn (Univ. of Michigan; Master Manager, John Wiley, 1995), who believes that people can effect great change in large organizations by changing themselves, has written a self-help book similar to but less structured than Stephen R. Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (S. & S., 1989). In four sections, he defines "deep change," discusses the need for personal change, provides insights into the perceptions of an internally driven leader, and challenges the reader to develop a vision that includes the creation of excellence. Each chapter is followed by a set of questions that are to be used as springboards to personal and organizational change. His book reads easily, and the presentation is inspirational. Few self-help books aimed at developing an individual's leadership skills are available, recommending this for general readers where there is demand or interest.S.C. Fair, Ohio Univ., Zanesville
