...brilliant insights into the mysteries of the change process at the heart of personal and organizational success...Any leader seriously interested in developing new strengths in others-and in oneself-needs to read this book. --Daniel Goleman, author, Emotional Intelligence
Immunity to Change is a wonderfully original approach to a familiar problem: why many crucial change efforts fail. It shows how the core problems of resistance to change stem from the critical gaps between what is required and a leader's own level of development. I know of no book that does a better job of helping leaders understand the commitment to change and how to put it into practice. --Peter Senge, author, The Fifth Discipline, and coauthor, The Necessary Revolution
Not being able to change doesn't mean we're lazy, stubborn, or weak. A pair of Harvard educators (Lahey and Kegan) argue that our best-laid plans often fall through for smart, self-protective (and ingeniously
hidden) reasons. --O Magazine, December 2008
