Cultural Change from Above and Within: Accountability in Leadership – Dr Deborah Cole, Dr Elizabeth Teisberg

This chapter is intended to explore what it means to try to push for cultural and structural change from a leadership position. What are the structural and relational forces and barriers that prevent leaders from implementing meaningful and significant measures to bring about cultural or structural change? How can leaders hold themselves accountable, to ensure that their visions of change, and actions intended to bring that change, remain true to the needs of the people for whom they are responsible?
