CCL fellows McGuire and Rhodes replace the common and popular myth that change in organizational culture is beyond the reach of mere mortals. They offer a practical guide for achieving feasible culture transformation by helping leaders see how leading the culture and managing the operations are two sides of the same coin. The book provides guidance and resources that helps leaders decide: (1) what change is feasible; (2) how to set practical incremental targets of change and development; and (3) what are the tools for navigating the turbulent waters of the change process.
