"Leaders who know the 'skinny' move people to achieve amazing results in a culture of shared ownership. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The appeal of Motion Leadership in our global quest to improve learning is that it cuts to the core of what 21st-century leadership is all about." -- Avis Glaze, Former Chief Student Achievement Officer of Ontario
"Fresh, lively, succinct. Whether you are just starting out as a new leader or are experienced at leading change, 'the skinny' is a great read. Motion Leadership will help you lead complex change." -- Steve Munby, Chief Executive
"A great book-a classic Fullan. He gives us the skinny on how leaders can take aim at inertia and set large-scale change in motion. Motion Leadership follows rules of powerful simplicity and transparency. This book inspires and shows leaders how they can achieve even the most ambitious change goals. Readers will be compelled to take action from the first page on." -- Milbrey McLauglin, David Jacks Professor of Education and Public Policy
`Here's a `Pearl and Dean' trailer for a forthcoming multimedia presentation on the subtleties and urgencies of improving schools. All school leaders will want to have this easy-to-read skinny. If I were still a school system leader, I would buy a copy for every school, just as I did of Fullan's original `What's woth fighting for..' and 'Leading in a culture of Change' books. Fullan defies the odds and gets even better with age. Mind you, I can't wait for the multi-media version of Motion Leadership." -- Tim Brighouse, Former Commisssioner of London Schools, England
"Fullan has done it again. The book opens up new worlds for school and system leaders. A giant leap forward that has path-breaking implications for educational leadership and the difference it can make to student achievement." -- Bill Hogarth, Director of Education
"A book that contains considerable information about the change process. Michael Fullan focuses on the skills needed to effectively lead complex change." -- Justin B. Henry, Superintendent
