    Highly recommended. These vibrant stories emphasise engagement, weaving patterns and paths and vividly showing the courage of people transforming themselves into leaders. Dr Monica Sharma, Director of Leadership and Capacity Development, United Nations

    If this is misinterpreted by superiors as an attack, the plain truth is that, while change often catches us off-guard, we must deal with it to keep on track. Taking the authors’ experience we have to close the gap between the managers and workers, making everyone a leader accountable to the general success. The New Vision, Uganda

    I fully endorse the approach in this book. In today’s conditions leadership needs to be gripped less tightly at the top and much more widely shared. When people feel that a brick which was on their head has been placed under their feet, the increased momentum is tremendous. Dame Sue Street DCB , Permanent Secretary, British Government

    Encourages a debate on how the chief executive of today can be a ‘leader of leaders’ who builds an effective leadership team, and changes old-style managers into inspirational leaders - hippos into gazelles. John Adair, international authority on leadership

    Small or evolutionary changes are no longer enough to enable business leaders to keep pace. Leaping from a Hippo to a Gazelle in a single generation is called for. Cliff Burrows, President of US Operations, Starbucks

    Vividly demonstrates how, if you can get alignment and create more leaders who all want to take the corporation to the same place - it is easier. Mark Garrett, Chief Executive, Borealis, Vienna

    Indispensible, a true gem. A complex message is communicated with ingenious simplicity. How the transition of a fragmented, cumbersome multinational into an agile and focused organisation is achievable through shared goals and an empowered workforce.

    The diagrammatic summaries of the stage reached, with signs of progress and tools to use – make it very practical. I like the candour in the observation which made it compelling and distinctive compared to other books about change leadership. John McKenzie, Head of Learning and Development, British Council

    Here you find clear insight into the factors that enable leaders to transform businesses. Trust me, this very readable book makes sense. Jerry Jarvis, Managing Director, Edexcel

    Shows us how to take a big leap forward into the kind of leadership which aligns everyone, while turning each person into a leader and a walking talking example. European CEO Magazine

    Well worth laying your hands on a copy. Succeeds by grounding a broad swathe of leadership practice from seminal thought leaders in the reality of a complex transformation process. In View Magazine, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement

    Leaders (too often) create stooges who live in their shadow. Goodwin and Page show how leaders can create leaders who are relevant and confident by asking people for their contribution. Sunrise Business News, Uganda

    A meta-story unfolds to reveal real life characters, their anxieties and aspirations, and builds into a transformation.

    I would not be surprised if, within a few years, this becomes a defining work for building change leaders. It beautifully combines the simple magic of “Who moved my Cheese” with the intellectual property Darryl Connor’s “Managing at the Speed of Change” adding the real experience of a true story of change.Jeremy Keeley, coach to change leaders
