In his previous best-selling books, Michael Fullan examined the concepts and processes of change. Now he turns his focus to the core practices of leadership that are so vital for leading in today's complex world. He outlines the six practices-Earn Trust, Fine-Tune Focus, Develop Others, Know Your Impact, Embrace Complexity, and Hope No Matter What-which appear to be deceptively simple but actually get to the essence of what differentiates a powerful leader from one who is merely competent. Fullan argues that powerful leaders have built bedrocks of credibility, have learned how to identify the few things that matter most, and know how to leverage their skills in ways that benefit their entire organization.
