An experienced leader and trainer explains how managers and leaders can find compassionate ways of facilitating change in their organizations
Drawing on deep experience of developing leaders from a wide range of public sector, private sector, community, and non-government organizations; as well as on Buddhist principles; Geoff Aigner identifies the inner tensions and work involved in making change. Offering an alternative to typical hardline approaches to leadership, he challenges common assumptions leaders make about themselves and their motivations, and offers strategies to develop fresh, effective, and truly compassionate ways of pursuing change. He explains that for leaders, good intentions are not enough--when despite your best efforts you run into obstacles and resistance, the temptation is to see the challenges as lying outside ourselves, to grasp at a model or a tool, or to find other people slow to get the point. Aigner reveals here that the real challenge we face is often ourselves.
