Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Open this book at your own risk. It contains ideas that may lead to a profound self-awakening. An introspective journey for those in the trenches of today's modern organizations, Deep Change is a survival manual for finding our own internal leadership power. By helping us learn new ways of thinking and behaving, it shows how we can transform ourselves from victims to powerful agents of change. And for anyone who yearns to be an internally driven leader, to motivate the people around them, and return to a satisfying work life, Deep Change holds the key.


"Deep Change should be mandatory reading for every business leader seeking the strength, direction, energy, and inspiration to shape organizational transformation."
Thomas C. Jones, president, CIGNA Individual Insurance.
