Leading in a culture of change by Michael Fullan( Book )

"Business, nonprofit, and public sector leaders are facing new and daunting challenges - rapid-paced developments in technology, sudden shifts in the marketplace, and crisis and contention in the public arena - if they are to survive in this chaotic environment, leaders must develop the skills they need to lead effectively no matter how fast the world around them is changing." "Leading in a Culture of Change offers new and seasoned leaders' insights into the dynamics of change and presents a unique and imaginative approach for navigating the intricacies of the change process. Author Michael Fullan shows how leaders in all types of organizations can accomplish their goals and become exceptional leaders. He draws on the most current ideas and theories on the topic of effective leadership, incorporates case examples of large scale transformation, and reveals a remarkable convergence of powerful themes or, as he calls them, the five core competencies."--Jacket
What's worth fighting for in the principalship? by Michael Fullan( Book )

23 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed to help principals (and teacher leaders) fight for fundamentally positive changes that will benefit themselves and their students. Because principals are very often overloaded either with what they are actually doing or with all the things they think they should be doing, their actions, however unintentionally, are frequently shaped by outside events and/or the actions or directions of others. In the heart of this book, "Guidelines for Action," the author helps principals break the cycle of dependency both for themselves and for those with whom they work
The six secrets of change : what the best leaders do to help their organizations survive and thrive by Michael Fullan( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Fullan explores essential lessons for business and public sector leaders for surviving and thriving in today's complex environment. He draws on his acclaimed work in bringing about large-scale and substantial change in education reform in both public school systems and universities, as well as engaging in major change initiatives internationally. The Six Secrets of Change is filled with lessons that are insightful, actionable, and concisely communicable. These lessons are "secrets" not because there is a conspiracy to hide them from public view, but because they are often difficult to grasp in their deep meaning, and challenging to appreciate and act on in combination. Fullan makes these so-called secrets accessible and useful and offers illustrative examples from a variety of businesses, health organizations, and public education systems
What's worth fighting for in your school? by Michael Fullan( Book )

41 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Encouraging teachers and principals to think more deeply about school reform, individual responsibility, and collaborative culture, What's Worth Fighting For in Your School? inspires teachers and principals to act as moral change agents in fighting for positive reform." "In addition to its outstanding analysis of "total teachers" and school culture, this book provides action guidelines for teachers and for principals that are filled with insights that will help school educators take responsibility for reform." "In an effort to develop new mind sets, knowledge-bases, and day-to-day dispositions and actions that should characterize the education profession of the future, this book talks about how teachers can work together for positive change, how they can collaborate with others outside the classroom to improve what goes on within it, and how principals and other leaders can support their teachers to make this happen."--Jacket

Change forces : the sequel by Michael Fullan( Book )

36 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fullan's first book on this subject was an instant and best-selling success. Now, in Change Forces, The Sequel, he extends and expands the use of chaos theory as a lens through which to view and comprehend change, and the forces which govern it. Educators have already widely embraced this approach, and adopted the idea that change is not so straightforward as we might hope. As Fullan worked on his ideas, relating them to school systems, higher education and research, the field of change forces also developed significantly. This volume covers the new aspects of this science of complexity and helps educators obtain insights for delving deeper into moral purpose and expanding into fresh dimensions of changing forces in the environment

What's worth fighting for out there? by Andy Hargreaves( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and Spanish and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This final book in the What's Worth Fighting For? trilogy concludes that the relationship between those in the school and those outside it must be fundamentally reframed. In a world of growing complexity and rapid change, if educators are going to bring about significant improvements in teaching and learning within schools, they must forge strong, open, and interactive connections with communities beyond them. To do this, the authors urge teachers and principals to go "wider" by developing new relationships with parents, employers, universities, technology, and the broader profession. At the same time, educators must also go "deeper" into the heart of their own practice by rediscovering the passion and moral purpose that make teaching and learning exciting and effective. As in the other two books in this series, the authors provide guidelines for teachers and principals to help them expand and improve their thinking and practice, and to show policy makers and communities what they can do and why they should do it for the sake of the future of children and society."--Jacket

17 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Change Forces with a Vengeance is the third book in the chaos theory trilogy (now called complexity theory). The first two books focused on understanding the real complexity of educational reform in action. This book pushes even deeper by providing new insights and lessons of change concerning moral purpose, and what is called tri-level reform - the school and community, the local district and the state. It draws on reform initiatives across many levels and countries so that the ideas are grounded in the reality of actual projects and findings as the forces of change play themselves out within and across the three levels."--Jacket
