Leading in a Culture of Change

The concept of Professional Capital, as written about by Michael Fullan, made a big difference for my understanding of leadership in I followed up my reading of the book with an action plan , and it interesting looking back how much of this has happened in my practice due to a shift in philosophy rather than returning to this document like a checklist.

Change can create fear, anxiety and danger; but also exhilaration, risk-taking, and excitement. The five areas are broken down in five chapters in the book.

Michael Fullan. This book by a prominent educator is readable. Michael Fullan is a university dean, and as such is a full-fledged member of the fraternity of educators. Yet he has not written in educator-ese, that impenetrable, opaque jargon familiar to anyone who has trudged through books on education. His approach to leadership is useful and realistic, with sections on moral purpose, relationships, knowledge sharing and change. Fullan does not set out to break new ground. Instead, he includes a good deal of information he has gathered from other researchers.

Recommendation

In Leading in a Culture of Change, Michael Fullan identifies five core components of effective leadership — moral purpose, understanding change, relationship building, knowledge creation and sharing, and coherence making. A chapter is devoted to each and is complemented by an introduction that provides an overview of the set, coupled with the claim that all effective leaders possess a set of more personal characteristics — energy, enthusiasm and hopefulness. However, he avoids the debate on which is likely to exist first. Overall, the book is easy to read and understand. Fullan offers some practical hints on understanding the change process and on which leadership styles tend to produce a significant, positive impact on cultural climate and performance. He also gives examples of how to build effective internal relationships to enhance the creation and sharing of business-focussed knowledge. At times, however, it appears to be more a collection of quotes and examples from the research of other authors than original thought.
