His 'gentle pressure, relentlessly applied' methodology puts the basic blocking and tackling of leadership into terms that leaders in all stages of their careers can easily understand and apply. These solid leadership principles have stood the test of time. I will be ordering a copy of this book for my entire leadership team, at every level of the organization."

"Leading Change is a beautifully written and effective follow-up to Dan Mann's first book, ORBiT. It details a common-sense roadmap for success and reminds us that there are no shortcuts for a leader looking to establish a culture of accountability in their organization. There is, however, a highly effective structure and process for bringing about such change. In Leading Change, Mann shows us the way."
-KELLY KNIGHT, Sun & Ski Sports
"Organizational change is never easy, and at times it can be downright scary. Working closely with Dan Mann, Red Rock Running Company was able to enact organizational change which made us an industry leader, setting standards in many key metrics that make us the envy of our peers. If you are looking for the leader's secret weapon to lasting change, this is the book for you."

"Dan Mann's Leading Change is the perfect combination of philosophy and application that leaders need to succeed in business today. Mann combines his expertise, honed through years of practical application, with his storytelling skills to give us implementation examples that are spot-on and easy to apply. His Gentle Pressure Relentlessly Applied framework is powerful and comprehensive, yet simple, with tools and applications that are repeatable and proven, along with a comprehensive process anyone can follow."
-TODD DALHAUSSER, president, Altra Running
"Too many books about enacting change are full of theory and high-level ideas which leave you asking, 'what do I actually do with this?' Dan Mann's Leading Change and his Gentle Pressure Relentlessly Applied framework come from the experience and perspective of an actual practitioner. The framework leaps off the page with real-in-market examples, and the book will leave you superbly prepared to lead change in your own organization."
