Praise for this Resource

  • “This book continues to resonate, encourage, and motivate action. It’s a powerful combination of inspirational, critical, and practical guidance delivered in daily doses.”

    —Stephanie Hirsh, Executive Director, Learning Forward
  • “Skillful leadership requires pattern recognition and answering the question: Is this pattern productive for our group, organization or project? If not, how do I most effectively break that pattern and help those involved develop new and more productive ways of interacting? This practical and engaging book offers practical tools for leaders who want to be better creators of patterns that take hold and become the new habits in powerful groups.”

    Bruce Wellman, MiraVia, LLC

The courageous people who choose this work need thoughtful, practical strategies that are easily accessible to reflect upon and refer to throughout the year.
