Written by a collaborative, diverse, and inclusive community of contributors and business experts, this book is about leading transformational change on an individual, team, organizational, and societal level.

Most large-scale transformational change happens because of unanticipated, unaddressed, unplanned disruptions which raise questions about what it takes to lead, survive, and even thrive in periods of transformational change. This book answers these critical questions:

  • What do leaders who drive and sustain successful transformational change actually do?
  • Why do we so often fail to lead and sustain transformational change?

This first-of-its-kind book offers a variety of lenses and perspectives, in the form of interviews, essays, and survey responses, with insights from business leaders, HR leaders, coaches, consultants, academics, thought leaders, and other transformational change experts.

The compilation of practical tools provides listeners with a deep and diverse analysis of top-notch thinking and practices for leading transformational change. This work is fundamental to aspiring leaders who wish to learn the secret sauce for leading transformational change.
