ABOUT THE BOOK: In Freedom to Change, bestselling author Michael Fullan uses his engaging, irreverent style to explore the two kinds of freedom in our daily lives: freedom from obstacles versus freedom to take initiative and act. Gaining freedom from barriers has no value in itself until it is partnered with an equally determined sense of what you truly want. What change would you like to bring about for yourself or those around you?
Given that human nature and productivity are fundamentally social, Fullan prescribes four dynamically interrelated actions we can take:
1. Consciously seeking a balance between our own autonomy and cooperation with others
2. Improving the feedback exchange—giving more valuable responses, as well as eliciting, hearing, and accepting feedback more effectively
3. Building accountability to others into the fabric of our working lives
4. Finding ways to influence others with the changes we’ve made and want to spread
