The Deep Change Field Guide
Based on Bob Quinn′s perennial bestseller, Deep Change, The Deep Change Field Guide takes readers through the introspective journey of personal transformation. This Field Guide streamlines, updates, and augments the content of the original book into an interactive self–teaching course that helps you learn how to become a powerful agent of change. Each chapter uses scenes from a familiar motion picture (Moneyball, Norma Rae, The King′s Speech, The Devil Wears Prada, Remember the Titans, Stand and Deliver, Dead Poets Society, and Gandhi) to illustrate the transformational process. The Guide also includes reflection questions and action plans that help you think about the concepts in terms of your own situation, and identify actions to embody the concepts in your life. The Field Guide has been carefully designed so that individual learners can gain the same benefits that students have long enjoyed in the author′s courses.
The Deep Change Field Guide is filled with illustrative stories, exercises, reflective questions, worksheets, and film assignments to help readers learn by putting the focus on the reader′s own thoughts and insights.
For anyone who yearns to be an internally driven leader, motivate the people around them, and develop a satisfying work life, The Deep Change Field Guide holds the key.
