Summary

A recent study showed that when doctors tell heart patients they will die if they don't change their habits, only one in seven will be able to follow through successfully. Desire and motivation aren't enough: even when it's literally a matter of life or death, the ability to change remains maddeningly elusive.

Given that the status quo is so potent, how can we change ourselves and our organizations?

In Immunity to Change, authors Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey show how our individual beliefs - along with the collective mindsets in our organizations - combine to create a natural but powerful immunity to change. By revealing how this mechanism holds us back, Kegan and Lahey give us the keys to unlock our potential and finally move forward. And by pinpointing and uprooting our own immunities to change, we can bring our organizations forward with us.

This persuasive and practical book, filled with hands-on diagnostics and compelling case studies, delivers the tools you need to overcome the forces of inertia and transform your life and your work.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Should be Required Reading for humanity

Very few self-help books workshop the reader through what's required for actual transformation. This does!

Best book I've ever read in this personal realm

Amazingly insightful and deceptively simple. This book will help you unlock stubborn internal patterns and grow your capacity in the first sense of the word.

Great Book!

Worth listening multiple times. But "Senge" is mispronounced. A minor but vexing problem. Hope it gets fixed.
