"Many of our organizations are in a crucible. Crucibles are utterly transformational experiences from which one emerges either hopelessly broken or powerfully emboldened to learn and lead. This book is a bright signal of what our change field has to assist you to become successful and make a difference in all you do."
--Dr. Warren Bennis, professor and founding chairman of The Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California
