"Rosamund Zander is a miracle. Her generous voice will resonate with you, change you and help you create work that matters." —Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception The bestselling author of The Art of Possibility returns with a new vision for achieving true human fulfillment that's sure to appeal to fans of Brene Brown's Daring Greatly and Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic As children, we develop stories about how the world works, most of which get improved upon and amended over time. But some do not, even as we mature in other ways. Opinionated, self-centered and fear-driven, these “child stories” are the source of the behavioral and emotional patterns that hold us back. When we learn to identify and rewrite these stories, limitless growth becomes possible. In her groundbreaking and inspiring new book, Rosamund Stone Zander shows us that life is a story we tell ourselves, and that we have the power to change that story. She illuminates how breaking old patterns and telling a new story can transform not just our own lives, but also our relationships with others—whether in a marriage, a classroom, or a business. Finally, she demonstrates how, with this new understanding of ourselves and our place within an interconnected world, we can take powerful action in the collective interest, and gain a sense of deep connection to the universe. Pathways to Possibility expands our notions of how much we can grow and change, whether we can affect others or the world at large, and how much freedom and joy we can experience. Stimulating and profound, it is the perfect companion to her beloved first book, The Art of Possibility. From the Hardcover edition.

In Teacher Leadership, Lieberman and Miller discuss current changes in the teacher's role, and make sense of the research on teacher leadership. They offer case studies of innovative programs - such as the National Writing Project - that provide teachers with opportunities to lead within a professional community. In addition, they tell stories of individual teachers - from Maine to California - who are able to lead in a variety of contexts. Teacher Leadership offers a new standard of teaching and community that recognizes all teachers as leaders. It shows how to develop learning communities that include rather than exclude, create knowledge rather than merely apply it, and that offer challenge and support to both new and experienced teachers. This book is a volume in the Jossey-Bass Leadership Library in Education - a series designed to meet the demand for new ideas and insights about leadership in schools.

Living Awake addresses the age-old quest for enlightenment and the desire to have more love, happiness, and fulfillment in life, yet is written from a modern western perspective. It addresses questions such as: Who am I? How did I get to be the way I am and how can I change? How does this reality I find myself in actually work? How can I create more of what I want in my relationships and in life? The book presents easily understandable models that the reader can validate in his or her own experience. Exercises in each chapter assist the reader in making these models experientially alive. Once the models are built, Landon presents a powerful process of self-actualization to help the reader begin to create more love, happiness and fulfillment in his or her everyday life - where it counts the most. This is the manual for how to be a human BEING that we all should have received as we began life's miraculous journey. But since we didn't, it is essential reading for all those who wish to transform their everyday lives and especially their relationships, creating more joy and fulfillment. Landon Carter went to some of the best schools America has to offer: Andover, Yale and Harvard Business School. In 1972, at age 28, he had achieved most of the elements of 'the American Dream' and yet was not happy. This wake up call prompted a life long quest for the answers to some of life's most fundamental questions. Over the years, Landon has worked with over 70,000 people in both the public and business arenas on the subject matter presented in this book. Living Awake represents his current understanding of the answers to the above questions. It contains the essential information he feels each of us should know, a guidebook on being a human Being.
