How the Way We Talk Can Change the Way We Work: Seven Languages for Transformation Paperback - 2002

by Robert Kegan; Lisa Laskow Lahey

In this intensely practical book, Harvard psychologists Kegan and Lahey take readers on a carefully guided journey designed to help them arrive at their own particular answers to solve the puzzling gap between what they intend and what they are able to accomplish.


First line

"In the four chapters of Part One, we engage you directly in a creative process rooted in your own experience, to acquaint you intellectually with four languages for personal learning and reflective leadership."

From the rear cover

"In this simple brilliant book, Kegan and Lahey not only deal with the how of transformation . . .they deal with the most central issue of all: How and why people (and organizations) are committed to not changing. . . a must-read for all individuals and organizations that truly wish to grow into their own greater possibilities."
--Ken Wilber, author, Integral Psychology

"A genuinely 21st century book! Kegan and Lahey create a dynamic alternative to merely coasting on the momentum of the information age. Why do we know so much and yet so little lasting change actually occurs-- in ourselves and in our organizations? This book doesn't just answer the question. It shows us a way out of the problem."
--Michael Murphy, founder, Esalen Institute and author of The Future of the Body

"Leaders trying to 'drive change' miss the deeper forces that might naturally enable it, forces which Kegan and Lahey reveal powerfully and practically."
--Peter Senge, author, The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization

"Lucid, accessible, and immensely satisfying, this provocative book is plainly the product of a very deep understanding of why people behave the way they do. . . . an approach to change that is at once systematic and humane. . . . Breakthrough thinking. . . compelling and inspiring."
--Tony Schwartz, contributing editor, Fast Company, and author, What Really Matters
