Exceptional organizations everywhere hum with vibrancy, relevance, and success. You can feel their magic, even if you don't know how they created it. When an organization hums, all of its people and parts are aligned with its purpose. Governing boards, leaders, and managers agree about where they want to go and how to get there.
Hum: Using Connective Change to Lead Your Organization to Greater Purpose and Harmony is a must-read for leaders who feel overwhelmed by change, inundated by demands to do more with less, and frustrated with negative patterns and old solutions. Sharing what she's learned from helping organizations all over the world shine, Schiller shares the secrets of organizations that hum, along with practical steps and tools for leaders who want their own organizations to achieve greater purpose and harmony.
