Quinn and Bottom-up Change

Quinn in his 1996 book "Deep Change: Discovering the Leader Within" identifies that change occurs when you find the source of trouble. He also suggests that cultural change needs to start with personal change, even for the CEO. Quinn suggests organizations need to undo forces that want to preserve the status quo, especially if they involve the maintenance of hierarchies. He also suggests promoting technically competent and innovative people may not help change, if they do not understand the culture or politics of the organization.
Is it possible for the power of the leader to poison the workplace environment? I think it may. Sometimes resistance or barriers are created by a leader, who is not trusted or respected. Quinn appears to support bottom up change, as well as the need for transformational leaders. Pressure by leaders to conform, will result in resistance and often leads to failure of any change initiatives.
