With [this book, the author] turns this idea into an action guide for organization leaders, managers, parents, and everyone else who wants to make a difference. [He] presents eight principles that each of us can follow to make individual and organizational change happen: envision the productive community; first look within; embrace the hypocritical self; transcend fear; embody a vision of the common good; disturb the system; surrender to the emergent process; and entice through moral power. These are the principles inspired by the teachings of Jesus, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. - three historical leaders who successfully used personal change to change the world. [This book] shows [the reader] how to use personal transformation to positively impact our families, organizations, businesses, and the world at large. -Dust jacket."@en ;
