IN THIS SUMMARY
At some point in their lives, many individuals get overwhelmed and disconnected. They feel that their lives lack meaning, and they realize they need to do something to alter their present situation but lack the motivation and inspiration to do so. They also want to influence and change the behavior of others. Confronting and experiencing a deep personal or organizational change is a difficult decision. Most individuals agonize over the constant choices they must make between making deep change or accepting slow death. When people experience deep change, it inspires them to encourage others to undergo a similar experience. Each person can become an agent of change. As individuals discipline their talents for change, they deepen their perceptions about what can be possible. These individuals then bring a discipline to their visions and a reverence for their relationships. Ultimately, life becomes more meaningful. In Deep Change, Robert E. Quinn challenges readers to explore the process of deep change and the development of internally driven leadership, providing the tools necessary to change the larger systems or organizations in which they exist.
