"Rosamund Zander is a miracle. Her generous voice will resonate with you, change you and help you create work that matters." —Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception The bestselling author of The Art of Possibility returns with a new vision for achieving true human fulfillment that's sure to appeal to fans of Brene Brown's Daring Greatly and Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic As children, we develop stories about how the world works, most of which get improved upon and amended over time. But some do not, even as we mature in other ways. Opinionated, self-centered and fear-driven, these “child stories” are the source of the behavioral and emotional patterns that hold us back. When we learn to identify and rewrite these stories, limitless growth becomes possible. In her groundbreaking and inspiring new book, Rosamund Stone Zander shows us that life is a story we tell ourselves, and that we have the power to change that story. She illuminates how breaking old patterns and telling a new story can transform not just our own lives, but also our relationships with others—whether in a marriage, a classroom, or a business. Finally, she demonstrates how, with this new understanding of ourselves and our place within an interconnected world, we can take powerful action in the collective interest, and gain a sense of deep connection to the universe. Pathways to Possibility expands our notions of how much we can grow and change, whether we can affect others or the world at large, and how much freedom and joy we can experience. Stimulating and profound, it is the perfect companion to her beloved first book, The Art of Possibility. From the Hardcover edition.

Tired of dry, theory-only reading you can’t connect to Real Life? If so, you’ve picked up the right book! Dr. Roz’s years of research and experience have equipped her to share with you a “blueprint” that will guide you in leading the process of constructing or redeveloping, a Culture of Excellence within your organization. Information and experiences shared, while based at a non-profit organization, are relevant for any industry. This book is written in an exciting, engaging manner, using acronyms, alliterations, metaphors, real life and workplace examples as well as hands-on activities that will catch your attention, stick in your mind, and ensure that you capture pertinent, usable information. Dr. Roz shares some power tools needed for positive organizational transformation, including Collaborative Leadership, Learning Organization Theory and -- her personal favorite -- Appreciative Inquiry. These change-management tools have been studied and written about, but not so much in the nonprofit/social context where they can have life-changing impact on organizations and on the people they serve and empower. Through defining these tools and demonstrating their impact, this book will prepare you and your organization to attain, maintain and sustain “A Culture of Excellence.” So, open this book and open yourself to an excellent journey ahead.
