"Everyone can make a positive difference in this world. Often this requires us to change something about ourselves and the choices we make. This book will be especially valuable to those who are leaders, or aspiring leaders, in their field.
--Dr. Jane Goodall, conservationist, primatologist, and UN Messenger of Peace

"We all have transformative experiences--two of the big ones are our birth and our death. One in all probability you can communicate; the other seems unlikely. In between are all our transformative experiences. Reading this book will be one."
--William Shatner, author of Boldly Go

"This book is an invaluable resource that empowers leaders with practical tools and strategies to challenge people's self-views and lead to expansions in their identity. It is a guide to transformations that yield the most meaningful kinds of professional and personal growth."
--Dr. Paul Marciano, bestselllng author of Carrots and Sticks Don't Work
