By Michael Fullan

The Six Secrets of Change describes what the best leaders do to help their organisations survive and thrive. The book explores essential lessons for business and public sector leaders in today’s complex environment. The author draws on his acclaimed work in bringing about large-scale and substantial change in education reform in both public school systems and universities, as well as engaging in major change initiatives internationally.

The book is filled with lessons that are insightful, actionable, and concisely communicable. These lessons are secrets not because there is a conspiracy to hide them from public view, but because they are often difficult to grasp in their deep meaning, and challenging to appreciate and act on in combination. Fullan makes these so-called secrets accessible and useful and offers illustrative examples from a variety of businesses, health organizations, and public education systems.
