Break free to make real change for yourself and others.
Have you ever felt like your progress was being blocked, not just by your own circumstances, but by the presence and actions of others? Do you constantly tell yourself that you would be more successful at teaching, leading or contributing to an organization if only others did not stand in your way? Bestselling author Michael Fullan’s new book, Freedom to Change: Four Strategies to Put Your Inner Drive into Overdrive explores the two kinds of freedom in our daily lives: freedom from obstacles versus freedom to take initiative and act.
Fullan prescribes four dynamically interrelated actions we can take:
- Consciously seeking a balance between our own autonomy and cooperation with others
- Improving the feedback exchange—giving more valuable responses, as well as eliciting, hearing and accepting feedback more effectively
- Building accountability to others into the fabric of our working lives
- Finding ways to influence others with the changes we’ve made and want to spread
Fullan invites readers to ask themselves what change they would like to bring about for themselves and those around them. Illustrated and enriched with examples from education, business and nonprofit sectors, Freedom to Change offers recommendations for both individuals and organizations seeking to enhance connectedness and independence.
