“Still Moving is an inspiring, practical and provocative take on the power of mindful leadership to reshape our world.”

Otto Scharmer, Senior Lecturer, MIT

 

“What makes a successful change agent in a world of exponential change? I have long argued that learning to live with ambiguity will be one of the keys to success. Still Moving will show you how.”

Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever

 

“A compelling and practical guide to the leadership of change. By sharing her self-reflection and brave journey into her past, Deborah inspires us all to become more conscious and embracing of our own life narratives.”

Ann Sarnoff, President, BBC Worldwide North America

 

“Still Moving is a must read for any senior leader or consultant who is responsible for leading large, complex change. Let the book speak to you, consume the wisdom, and put that wisdom into practice.” 

Bill Adams, CEO, The Leadership Circle and Full Circle Group 

 

“How strange that it has taken so long for us to wake up to the fact that the inner states and capacities of leaders really matter. Still Moving changes the game, and not too soon.”

Michael Chaskalson, Professor of Practice, Ashridge Business School

 

“Still Moving is a must read for any leader who wants to engage the hearts and minds of their people to drive real change. More than a book about courage, it is, above all else, a courageous book.”

Sarah Whitmore, Head of Leadership Academy, Rolls-Royce Holdings

 

“Still Moving is an exciting breakthrough in thinking on leading change and a must read for any serious change leadership practitioner. It challenges us to consider how change needs to be different in today's fast paced world.”

Mike White, Former Chairman and CEO, DirecTV

 

“Still Moving will permanently alter the way you think about leading change. Thoughtful, honest, compelling.”

Kevin Cox, Chief Human Resources Officer, American Express Company

 

"A book for our times. At last. Thank you Deborah for penning a pioneering and powerful guide to leadership and organizational change in these accelerated times. The book invites us to go deeper when a million distractions vie for our attention and keep us 'busy'. It outlines with rigour and diligence how to build the capacity to tolerate the discomfort of change with more awareness, ease and energy . It is not for the faint hearted , the book challenges us to go on a journey with the engaging case studies and elegant explanations of what it is to be a leader today. Asking us to become profoundly aware of the inner fine tuning required to be present to systemic changes within teams, the organization and the wider global context. Especially when leading teams and organisations into the unknown there is an extreme need for safety and trust ....she invites us to look at what leadership qualities and states enable us and which disable us when navigating uncertainty . Not only is the leader's inner state key but understanding the dynamics and energies that are the complex tectonic layers of the system. Respectful and robust leadership of self and others takes practice and commitment, Deborah asks us to start our practice now with the first step of reading her book."
