Managing Change
Leading in a Culture of Change
by Michael Fullan

Characteristics of change for leaders
“Whatever one’s style, every leader, to be effective, must have and work on improving his or her moral purpose."

“Whether people are driven by egoistic (self-centered) or altruistic (unselfish) motives, the fact is that all effective leaders are driven by both.”
Moral Purpose
Understand the process of change, the complexities, the challenge, the journey, and what it means to change the culture of an organization.
Understanding Change
Sustained Success-More Change
Relationships, Relationships, Relationships
“If moral purpose is job one, relationships are job two, as you can’t get anywhere without them.”
Knowledge Building
“It is one of life’s great ironies: schools are in the business of teaching and learning, yet they are terrible at learning from each other. If they ever discover how to do this, their future is assured.”
Coherence Making
“The most powerful coherence is a function of having worked through the ambiguities and complexities of hard-to-solve problems.”
