'Aigner connects the inner journey of leadership with the external realities in a readable, useful, practical guide for anyone leading change' - Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky, co-authors, Leadership on the Line and co-founders, Cambridge Leadership Associates..'World-leading thinking on leadership' - Carl Harman, Academy Dean, Leadership and Talent, National Australia Bank..Good intentions are not enough. You want to change things in your organisation or in the world, but despite your best efforts you run into obstacles and resistance...The temptation is to see the challenges as lying outside ourselves. We grasp at a model or a tool, or we find other people slow to get the point or worse - obstructive.

He challenges common assumptions we make about ourselves and our motivations, and offers strategies to explore approaches to leadership and develop effective and truly compassionate ways of pursuing change...
