Combining academic expertise with comprehensive experience in leadership development and strategic planning, co-authors Smith and Lindsay have brought the best of both worlds to Leading Change in Your World. Their change model is a practical “how-to” blueprint for facilitating and managing constructive change in every sphere of influence.

As students develop a personal plan for change based on the Smith-Lindsay model, they examine change theories, leadership principles, vision and mission statements, strategic plans, problem-solving models, and real-life examples of people who have made a difference in the world.

Since its first printing in 2001, Leading Change in Your World has been incorporated into the curriculum of several colleges and universities. Its ability to engage students in out-of-box thinking is the first step in moving them out of their comfort zones and through the barriers that restrict their self-knowledge and obstruct their vision of the larger world.

"The architecture for the building and fine-tuning of leadership, according Smith and Lindsay, is an inside-out process. This thoughtful and clearly reasoned approach presents developing and veteran leaders alike with a values-based dimension for leading change. The authors have contextualized leadership through cases, stories, applications and meaningful models making this book especially useful for school leaders. Now, more than ever, successful leaders are practicing the characteristics of the "Servant Leader" while overcoming the outdated, negative elements of position power, charisma, control, and quid pro quo information sharing. Leading Change in Your World is a required text for my WKU graduate students!"
