I rarely recommend products or books on my blog, but after reading it I couldn’t let it go without letting you know about it!
As you’ve probably guessed by the title of my post, the name of the book is:
“Change-Friendly Leadership” by Dr. Rodger Dean Duncan
We live in a moment of history when change is so fast-paced that we sometimes see the present only when it’s already starting to disappear.
And such a time requires a special kind of leadership.
Here’s some of what Stephen M.R. Covey said in the book’s foreword:
“A truly splendid book … highly relevant, tremendously insightful, remarkably accessible. Rodger deeply understands the change process and how difficult it is for people and organizations to manage change. This profound understanding gives him an insightful perspective into how to solve it, i.e., ‘how to engage people’s heads, hearts, and hopes.’ Rodger has created a user-friendly implementation guide to help buffer the shock wave that often accompanies change.”
Change-Friendly Leadership has many, many other endorsements from a wide range of respected people. Here are just a handful:
“I am impressed by the utter simplicity and brilliance of Change-Friendly Leadership. To borrow a well-worn political phrase, ‘It’s the relationships, stupid!’
- Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Radio host, author of 12 New York Times bestsellers
“Dr. Rodger Dean Duncan recognizes the vital human elements of a smooth transition: the power of teamwork, the importance of trust, the value of communication, and why it’s critical to regard your people as your business partners. With wisdom and insight, Change-Friendly Leadership beautifully brings home the simple truth that people are as important as results.”
- Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One Minute Manager
“I really like this book. It’s full of stimulating thoughts coupled with examples that make them accessible and immediately implementable. This book should be read – and used – by managers, consultants, academics, and the general public.”
- Dr. Edgar Schein, Professor Emeritus at the MIT Sloan School of Management, author of Organizational Change and Culture
“As a leader in the corporate world for over three decades, I find myself drawn to books which offer enlightened thinking on leadership that stand up to scrutiny from a practitioner’s point of view and can be put to work on Monday morning. This is one of those books. I highly recommend it.”
- Douglas R. Conant, Retired President & CEO of Campbell Soup Company, New York Times bestselling author of TouchPoints
Whether you’re a corporate CEO or a soccer mom, change is inevitable. And it’s often uncomfortable, even scary … not just for you, but also for those around you whom you may be trying to rally. Whether it’s a company department, a PTA or church group, or perhaps even your family. Change requires a special kind of leadership.
“Many books have changed my mind, but few have changed my habits. I cannot think of a single individual, company, or organization that wouldn’t benefit from Change-Friendly Leadership and its powerful calls to action. If it doesn’t inspire you to seek permanent, sustainable change, you weren’t paying attention. It’s that good.”
- Jason Wright, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today bestselling author
Let’s face it: Your ability to handle change is the difference between success and stagnation, between triumph and timidity. This is a skill you must have!
My friend Rodger Dean Duncan is a recognized expert in leadership and change issues. He has consulted with everyone from the largest global corporations to single individuals seeking to be more effective – including cabinet officers in two White House administrations.
This is a book that anyone can benefit from, whether a corporate manager or business person, a member of an organization, an entrepreneur, a parent, or just those who want to learn how to transform change from an uncomfortable intrusion to an exciting opportunity!
What’s more, it’s not one of those books that impart knowledge without telling you how to actually use it. Dr. Duncan walks you through the process of dealing with change in seven easy-to-understand steps you’ll be able to apply to an array of life situations. It’s a practical book.
