John B. McGuire and Gary Rhodes.

It is becoming more and more obvious that a developmental view of the human being is the core of any effective human change process. Transforming Your Leadership Culture is the latest book about how and why this is so, and how to implement it in your own organisation.

The book is helpful to leaders burned by the failure of traditional change management. It provides a wholly new perspective for transforming leaders and organizational culture simultaneously, and rapidly.

The path to creating a genuine leadership culture in organizations is perhaps the deepest mystery of organizing. The authors have carefully documented the actual paths taken by some of the very few organisations that have successfully transformed toward interdependence together. The book maps the process into the heart of this mystery.
