Advance Acclaim for The Dance of Change:

--Warren Bennis, professor, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California, and coauthor of Co-Leaders

"Senge's message of growth and prosperity holds strong appeal for today's business leaders."
"Peter Senge's advocacy of the learning organization helped begin a revolution in the workplace. And, the relevance of Senge's work is growing rather than diminishing over time. As more businesses go global, the need to overcome psychological barriers to necessary organizational change increases."
