Review quote

"Indelible Leadership is quite simply fantastic! Fullan's book offers an exceptional framework for action in our complex times. It provides tools, lots of gems and surprising insights, and thought provoking challenges. I found myself immediately putting these ideas into practice. As a long time consultant on transformational leadership Fullan has already `left this reader learning'." -- Mike East, General Manager, K-12 Education "The reach of Michael Fullan's ideas has no limits. He sets out how leaders can forge a path of lasting improvement. As usual he identifies a critical issue that we should have known-every leader leaves at some point and if too much depends on him the chances for continuity are seriously compromised. Learn how to make a deep impact today in a way that leaves a growing legacy for tomorrow." -- Avis Glaze "Indelible Leadership challenges and guides leaders to help students and teachers learn deeply. Fullan has shown why new leadership is crucial for our times, and more significantly reveals what it looks like in practice. Read it and take your leadership to a deeper level!" -- Laura Schwalm, Senior Partner "This book provides a wonderfully clear and concise guide for education leaders who want to make a real difference in the midst of challenging times. Fullan is a master!" -- Tony Wagner, Author "Few today have broader and deeper insights than Michael Fullan in helping to develop leadership amidst the cross currents of today's school environments. Students themselves are the hidden agents for deep change, and the real leadership capabilities needed today can be learned are just two of Fullan's timely insights in Indelible Leadership." -- Peter Senge
