This classic book is about creating sustainable, robust, effective organizational change. Knowles' stories of his own journey toward learning to think and lead in this powerful way, along with the practical tools and models that he created and developed, make this an excellent read. Even though the book is 11 years old everything is still relevant and practical for those who want to create real, sustainable change in their organizations today! You need to read this insightful, useful book now!

Richard's theory & application is a unique blend of Enneagram framework & Group Process work. He has converted the many learnings from the field of CAS into a practical approach of helping groups & individuals to successfully work together & achieve mission even in the most challenging situations. His work is ground breaking & now its time to adopt his work at a large scale as we deal with complex environment & knowledge driven work.

When I read the fine book, The Soul at Work, by Roger Lewin and Birute Regine, my favorite example involved Dr. Knowles in his role as a plant manager before he became a consultant. The Leadership Dance takes that anecdotal evidence and expands it into a deep understanding of how to define and continuously improve management processes.
Anyone who thinks that leadership cannot be carefully defined and described will find this book to be a revelation. What makes it all the more remarkable is that Dr. Knowles is extremely humble and bends over backward to give everyone else as much credit as possible. When was the last time that you read a business book like that?
Let me caution you that this book is not for the casual reader. It's more like a dissertation done by a Ph.D. candidate in management. Dr. Knowles does a brilliant job of combining many sources of theory and practice into constantly developing examples that make the two sides of the perspective come together well.
The fundamental insight he had was that in times of crisis things get done effectively through self-organization. People pitch in, and the work gets done. When the crisis is over, people go back to being hierarchical and ineffective. A typical approach in most companies is to wait for a crisis or try to cause one to reinstitute that effectiveness. Dr. Knowles shows how self-organization can be working effectively all the time. And it's not just theory. He actually did it himself. Nice going!
Actually, Dr. Knowles has a bigger idea here than he realizes. In the examples, he is looking at narrow issues such as replacing damaged equipment quickly, improving safety, or cutting operating costs. His same concepts could be applied much more productively to the entire enterprise for processes such as continuous business model innovation, which Carol Coles and I address in our new book, The Ultimate Competitive Advantage.
Anyone who loved Leadership and the New Science, The Goal, The Fifth Discipline, or The Soul at Work will add greatly to their knowledge if they read and apply this book. Be prepared for some challenging reading and thinking though. But it's worth it!
Anyone who wants to be a truly effective leader must master these disciplines. By repeatedly studying and applying this book, anyone can do it! In the process, you will learn to banish all those thoughts about needing to become a hero leader.

I highly recommend the work of Dr. Richard Knowles. This classic on organizational transformation is just coming into its own as the interest in chaos and complexity theories grows and the frustrations with the current step-by-step models deepen and spread. While this book was published 11 years ago, the timeless models and tools, along with it's practical relevance make this an invaluable read for anyone interested in organizational transformation. These robust models and tools are proven in many organizations and countries. Organizations are complex systems requiring models of complexity to help people to reach agreements on complex problems. The central tool, The Process Enneagram©, is fully described and many examples of its use are shown. This is a must read book!

This is a MUST read for any leader who wants to reach organisational effectiveness beyond command and control performance limitations. The author is making leadership style once again a critical success factor in developing competitive fitness.
This book is about theory developed from experience. The format of the book is basically a recall of events leading to a new leadership theory, theory expanded into operational models and those models applied to the practice of leadership.
The author first creates a personal contextual picture through a fascinating recall of exciting events in the chemical industry that shaped his perspective on leadership. Right through the book there is an honest discourse of the author's own inner struggle to make the paradigm shift from being a command and control leader to a leadership role in a self-organising enterprise.
The author presents several models for leaders to navigate the seas of a self-organising enterprise. The process enneagram is presented and applied as a coherent self-referential guiding tool that shifts the paradigm from command and control leadership to self-organisation. The process enneagram provides guidance but the author's understanding of rhythms of change, the emergence of meaning and the will to act, brings passion and soul to the process enneagram solution. Lastly the author expands beyond short term performance improvement by introducing sustainability ratios that is a prerequisite self-organisation.
The power of this book is embedded in the way the author combines depth of practicality with depth in theoretical expansion. Both the practical hands-on leader as well as the visionary leader will find direction and guidance in this book of how to improve organisational effectiveness.
