Tools for Transformation

This is an invaluable collection of practical and accessible tools to create the kinds of organizational and personal change described in What is Transformation? and Transforming Organizations.

Each tool is simple and specific, results-oriented, with the potential to revolutionize your work. They are designed to help consultants, leaders, and team members create healthy and effective social change organizations. Many of these are original tools created by Robert Gass. Some are adaptations or descriptions of tools that are in general use, and a few are reprinted with permission from their authors.
