    1. Van prof. dr. Robert E. Quinn heb ik sinds eind jaren ’90 het Handboek Managementvaardigheden en Verander de wereld in de kast en vaak gebruikt. Afgelopen zomer nam ik van Henk Jan Kamsteeg twee andere titels, Persoonlijk meesterschap in management voorbij rationeel management (1991) en De brug bouwen terwijl je erover loopt (2004) over. €5 voor een 'evergreen', dat 10 jaar na data €41 kost op managementboek. Deze 'gids voor leidinggeven bij verandering', en verandering is er vaak, start v [...]


    2. I read this book as a part of an assignment for Leadership Achieve. Leadership Achieve is a group of 6 people (including me) who take leadership classes from our organization's President & CEO for a year. Graduation from this group is slated to take place in 2 months. I have learned a lot about myself during this process. I have learned how to be a better leader and how to bring about change more effectively.In this book, the author, Robert E. Quinn, discusses the fundamental state of leader [...]


    3. I picked up this book because it was a sequel to Quinn's Deep Change, a profoundly helpful book in thinking about myself as a leader, and the need for a leader to constantly being involved in a process of ongoing transformation, i.e. deep change. This book was a disappointment in that in many ways the first part rehearses the insights of Deep Change and continually refers back to it. The second part focuses on Quinn's concept of foundational leadership, in which the process of deep change can be [...]


    4. This book is a deep dive into the concept of transformational leadership. Having finished the book, I am still working on concepts that Quinn introduced to me; I am writing about them and may share them with people I share time with. The concept of "The fundamental state of leadership" required a great deal of reflection for me, this concept suggests that we can (must!) enter into a primal state of readiness for change at pivotal moments in our lives. Perhaps the greatest leaders among us learn [...]


    5. I bought this book when I first got involved in big change programs.It definitely was a great help switching from rather well-defined, planned-through technical projects to these 'soft' types of projects.My biggest learning point from this book: You cannot fully plan a change program in advance, you have to review and adjust as you go. Overall, the book was an important factor in adopting a suitable approach and mind set to change initiatives.I am planning a second read for another in-depth revi [...]


    6. "If you are wanting to read a book that will asset you understanding what is real leadership? This book is a must read! Robert E. Quinn will give the reader tools for decision making as well as being fully integrated as a leader. "






    7. Didn't really speak to mead parts of it, but not all. Certainly object to a few of his implications but mostly just not all that compelling




    8. I read this book because of an article by the same author, regarding the Fundamental State of Leadership. I read the article over and over, and will keep re-reading it probably. The first half of this book is about the same subject, the last half is good but more generic. Let me know if you'd like me to send you copy of the article. Over time, I will read the author's earlier works, but am not rushing out to do so. This title alone had a lot of things to think about and work through.


    9. Made it through about half. There are good principles about what leadership is and how anyone can be a leader regardless of what authority or assignments they have. Not interesting enough to keep my attention.
