Complex times call for clear solutions—If initiative overload and fragmentation are keeping your best plans from becoming reality, it’s time to start leading differently. The key to bringing about the kind of successful and sustainable change you need is the Coherence Framework, a dynamic, customizable road map.

Learn the four components of the Coherence Framework:

  1. Focused direction to build collective purpose
  2. Cultivating collaborative cultures while clarifying individual and team roles
  3. Deepening learning to accelerate improvement and foster innovation
  4. Securing accountability from the inside out


"Coherence is a book that demands action – it moves from the narrative of fixing one teacher at a time, to asking about the coherence of the system (be it school, national, or world issues).  Fullan and Quinn create an important narrative about direction, working together, deepening learning, and securing accountability. The book sparkles with examples of coherence in action, it makes no excuses for employing the wrong levers of change. This is the blueprint for a new vocabulary of education action; it shows where we need to go next, and is another example of Fullan at the top of his game."
-John Hattie, Director and Author of Visible Learning
