"At the very time the need for effective leadership is reaching critical proportions, Michael Fullan's Leading in a Culture of Change provides powerful insights for moving forward. We look forward to sharing it with our grantees." --Tom Vander Ark, executive director, Education, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation "Fullan articulates clearly the core values and practices of leadership required at all levels of the organization. Using specific examples, he convinces us that the key change principles are equally critical for leadership in business and education organizations." --John Evans, chairman, Torstar Corporation "In Leading in a Culture of Change, Michael Fullan deftly combines his expertise in school reform with the latest insights in organizational change and leadership. The result is a compelling and insightful exposition on how leaders in any setting can bring about lasting, positive, systemic change in their organizations." --John Alexander, president, Center for Creative Leadership "Michael Fullan's work is remarkable. He masterfully captures how leaders can significantly improve their learning and performance, even in the uncontrollable, chaotic circumstances in which they practice. A tour de force." --Anthony Alvarado, chancellor of instruction, San Diego City Schools "Too often schools and businesses are seen as separate and foreign places. Michael Fullan blends the best of knowledge from each into an exemplary template for improving leadership in both." --Terrence E. Deal, coauthor of Leading with Soul Business, nonprofit, and public sector leaders are facing new and daunting challenges--rapid-paced developments in technology, sudden shifts in the marketplace, and crisis and contention in the public arena. If they are to survive in this chaotic environment, leaders must develop the skills they need to lead effectively no matter how fast the world around them is changing. Leading in a Culture of Change offers new and seasoned leaders' insights into the dynamics of change and presents a unique and imaginative approach for navigating the intricacies of the change process. Michael Fullan--an internationally acclaimed expert in organizational change--shows how leaders in all types of organizations can accomplish their goals and become exceptional leaders. He draws on the most current ideas and theories on the topic of effective leadership, incorporates case examples of large scale transformation, and reveals a remarkable convergence of powerful themes or, as he calls them, the five core competencies. By integrating the five core competencies--attending to a broader moral purpose, keeping on top of the change process, cultivating relationships, sharing knowledge, and setting a vision and context for creating coherence in organizations--leaders will be empowered to deal with complex change. They will be transformed into exceptional leaders who consistently mobilize their compatriots to do important and difficult work under conditions of constant change.

Contrary to popular belief, leadership is not the solution to every business problem or sustained business success. The answer lies in the culture of the organization. Strong business leaders follow their organization's culture and guide with a system of beliefs called Cultureship. Business managers who practice Cultureship know that developing and leading high-performing cultures can be learned and taught. Backed with irrefutable evidence, Cultureship introduces this system of beliefs and illustrates how changing culture can quickly lead to better business results; how every employee wants to grow, serve, and perform; how associates ultimately own the culture; and how successful leaders don't tell, they lead. Once you understand each of the ten beliefs and how they fit together as a unified whole, you will be on your way to becoming a great leader. Applying Cultureship to your own business, whether you're a novice or a more experienced manager, will differentiate your organization, increase productivity, lead to higher profits, and elevate you to a more advanced level of personal leadership success.

You've gotten used to managing a diverse workforce. You deal with vendors across the globe. You see people as people, whether they're Chinese, Indian, Mexican, or American. You know the basic protocols to follow and the taboos to avoid. Still, when you arrive in another country or sit down to negotiate with someone from a different culture, you feel anxious and awkward, and often wind up saying or doing something wrong. You're not alone. Seventy percent of international ventures fail because of cultural differences. Do you need to speak multiple languages and have a Ph.D. in international relations to succeed in these global times? The reassuring reality is that you don't need to master all the norms and nuances of the myriad of cultures you encounter. What you need is CQ. That's short for Cultural Intelligence, a new set of skills and sensitivities that picks up where EQ leaves off. Leading with Cultural Intelligence is a ground-breaking guide to developing the repertoire and perspective to lead across a wide range of cultures--effectively, respectfully, and confidently. A global leadership consultant, David Livermore presents a proven model for success in any unfamiliar cultural context. It's easy to grasp and follow, yet radically different from simplistic approaches that focus on mimicking other cultures' gestures and phrases. Rooted in rigorous research spanning 25 countries, the CQ way of relating to and inspiring people from different national, ethnic, and organizational cultures is an ongoing cycle. You'll learn how to lead cross-culturally--and continually grow in proficiency and comfort--by applying a process with four key components: Drive. What's your motivation for this cross-cultural assignment? How can you increase your confidence level? Knowledge. What specific cultural systems, issues, and values do you need to understand? Strategy. What information do you need to map out a successful cross-cultural plan? What assumptions do you need to check? Action. What communication style and behaviors should you adapt for this intercultural interaction? At every step, you'll find helpful summaries and best practices. You'll also gain valuable insights into common situations, from eating unfamiliar local delicacies to apologizing, through the stories of frequent cross-cultural travelers. With Leading with Cultural Intelligence as your trusted compass, you'll be able to thrive in the global business climate and handle multi-cultural hurdles in your own backyard. By raising your CQ, you'll also contribute to the greater good of equal humanity for all. David Livermore, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the Global Learning Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In addition, he is a Senior Research Consultant with the Cultural Intelligence Center in East Lansing, Michigan, and a Visiting Research Fellow at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. He has done consulting and training with leaders in 75 countries across the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Visit
