Change is at the core of human essence. The simplest definition of change is to make different. Human essence isn't so simple to define. Aristotle referred to it as to ti esti, "the what it is" As such, change makes different what is.
Many experts now assert the number one task of leaders is simply to manage change. Yet managing change is anything but simple. Leading change is even more difficult. Maximizing value in this environment requires leadership-and not yesterday's authoritarian style of leadership, but leadership at a higher level that connects with both the heart and the mind.

From the Author:

I want to relate why I wrote this book.  Having this understanding may help you appreciate the book's unique structure and content.  Simply stated, I wrote this to be a tool to help managers get better at leading change. 
Those who study such things report that we finish reading less than half of all books that we begin.  Within this genre (Management & Leadership), we tend to skim rather than read books cover to cover. Knowing this about our nature, I've constructed the book as a road map that introduces and briefly discusses more than fifty tools and applications for managers to use in their pursuit to deal with the complexities presented by change. Several reviews have adequately identified the absence of a thorough explanation and application for some of these tools and concepts.  But any attempt to discuss each of these in detail would require volumes of texts.  Within this vein, I've written this book as a reference manual of sort to help middle managers develop improved tools and techniques to deal with the constant change they face in our organizations. 
The appendix provides a consolidated Change Leadership Toolbox for the tools and applications discussed within the text. The bibliography provides references for more than 150 sources that readers can use for further independent study. As a side note, several specific concepts are planned for future works that will allow for a more thorough discussion with real-life applications. But in the mean time, I hope that you find the road map provided by Leading Change From Within as something that can add value in your pursuit to improve your organizations and those that you serve.

From the Inside Flap:

Sociologists estimate there to be eleven million middle managers in the United States. It's easy to substantiate this number much higher. The latest census shows about fifty-one million workers aligned to management, professional and related occupations. Of these, slightly more than one million are in the role of chief executive. It follows the remaining fifty million are in a role with some decision-making capacity, but don't have ultimate authority. Research indicates as much as 90% of this group claims to be unprepared to deal with change. These professionals seek to accomplish their work while accounting for technology advances, globalization, and an increasing emphasis on lower costs and sustainability. And they do so in an environment of constant change.
