This is an invaluable collection of practical and accessible tools to create the kinds of organizational and personal change described in What is Transformation? and Transforming Organizations.
Each tool is simple and specific, results-oriented, with the potential to revolutionize your work. They are designed to help consultants, leaders, and team members create healthy and effective social change organizations. Many of these are original tools created by Robert Gass. Some are adaptations or descriptions of tools that are in general use, and a few are reprinted with permission from their authors.

Equity & Inclusion
An equity analysis is critical to social change efforts. The resources on this site do not have an explicit equity analysis. We encourage you to seek out consultants and tools that ground their change work within an equity practice.
Here are some recommended tools and resources:
- Phases of a Deep Equity Process
- Racial Equity Resources Library
- Building Movement Project
- Equity in the Center
- Interaction Institute for Social Change Trainings
- Dismantling Racism Workbook
- Holding Change | The Way of Emergent Strategy Facilitation and Mediation
- Coaching for Healing, Justice, and Liberation
