Publisher Comments:

The idea that inner change makes outer change possible has always been part of spiritual and psychological teachings. But, until now, it's an idea that hasn't usually been addressed in leadership and management training. With Change the World! Quinn turns this idea into an action guide for organization leaders, managers, parents, and everyone else who wants to make a difference.

Change the World presents eight principles that each of us can follow to make individual and organizational change happen: envision the productive community; first look within; embrace the hypocritical self; transcend fear; embody a vision of the common good; disturb the system; surrender to the emergent process; and entice through moral power. These are principles inspired by the teachings of Jesus, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr.-- three historical leaders who successfully used personal change to change the world.

Quinn introduces each principle with inspiring quotations from those three leaders. He then uses stories from everyday life to demonstrate how ordinary people can learn to apply themselves in extraordinary ways. Every thought-provoking chapter is imbued with ideas and information that can help us step out of our old roles, approach the world with a sense of enlightenment and adventure, and live a more empowered and empowering life.

Faced with the complexities of today's world, it's all too easy to view ourselves as passive observers or powerless victims. We want to change our realities, but lack the motivation to do so. Change the World shows us how to use personal transformation to positively impact our families, organizations, businesses, and the world at large.

Synopsis:

"Change the World" ist ein umfassender und solider Leitfaden zum Erfolg. Hier erfahren Sie Ihr Leben positiv verändern können. Die Kernaussage des Buches heißt - ändere Dich und Du kannst die Welt verändern. Dabei ist es jedoch wichtig zu erkennen, daß der äußere und der innere Wandel untrennbar miteinander verbunden sind, d.h. daß ohne einen inneren Wandel ein äußerer nicht möglich ist. Anhand von 8 Leitsätzen, die der Autor u.a. aus den Arbeiten von Gandhi und King herausgearbeitet hat, wird erläutert, wie man sein Leben erfolgreich ändert. Das Buch richtet sich aber nicht nur an Manager und Fachleute, die für den organisatorischen Wandel in Unternehmen verantwortlich sind, sondern auch an ganz gewöhnliche Leser, die mehr erreichen wollen.

Synopsis:

In this empowering book, Robert E. Quinn, author of the highly successful and influential Deep Change, gives readers the courage to use personal transformation to positively impact their home life, work life, and communities — to be what he refers to as "inner-directed and outer-focused." We are all potential change agents, but most of us are trapped by belief that we as individuals cannot make a difference. Informed by the teachings of Jesus, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. — three of the most successful change agents ever — Quinn outlines eight steps each of us can take to move ourselves and others to the highest levels of excellence. Following his advice, each of us can access and apply the power that lies within us in ways that will change our world for the better.
