Description:

Leading Change in Multiple Contexts is a collective effort by participants to intentionally modify, alter or transform human social systems. Research and publications on leading change typically center on "how to lead change successfully in organizations," often with an emphasis on practices. The unique contribution of this book is that it brings together leadership and change concepts and practices that affect leading change in five contexts - organizational, community, political, social change, and global.- The book uses a consistent framework throughout for understanding and applying concepts and practices of leading change.- Each chapter begins with a vignette about real-life situations that provide examples of leading change in each context. - Application and reflection exercises allow readers to apply the information they learn.
