A spoonful of empathic leadership, a smattering of new tools, and a few sachets of foundational values boil together to create organizational transformation.

Change is inevitable and usually painful. A spoonful of empathic leadership, a smattering of new tools, and a few sachets of foundational values boil together to create organizational transformation. However, not all change efforts are successful. Alchemy of Change shows that value-based institutions, which evolve from the wisdom of the soil, can bring about enduring change.
Introducing the Indian Model of Change, which is based on Indian values of leadership, dialogue, mutual respect, and goal setting, the authors explain how the nuances and distinctions of the Indian mindset and cultural backdrop can help to keep pace with today’s fast-changing world.
