Book Description

This compelling video program distills the ideas and insights offered in the late Dr. Edwin H. Friedman's acclaimed workshops on leadership. Drawing on his extensive experience with families and religious congregations--and broadening the focus to encompass larger organizations as well--Dr. Friedman shares essential insights into why systems become ""stuck,"" who makes change happen, and how. The program includes segments from actual seminars, on-camera discussions with Dr. Friedman and with workshop participants, and a companion study and discussion guide.



Edwin H. Friedman, until his death in 1996, worked for more than 35 years in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, and was in great demand as a consultant and public speaker throughout the country. A family therapist and ordained rabbi, Dr. Friedman was well known in the fields of mental health and pastoral education for his motivational style and his unique blend of systems thinking, humor, and common sense. He offered acclaimed workshops for mental health practitioners, clergy, business leaders, and others.
