Publisher's Summary

Includes a unique audiobook experience with NY Times bestselling author Rachel Hollis, author and inspirational speaker Trent Shelton, and Delta CEO Ed Bastian Sharing their leadership insights in a live recording from Leadershift Live!

Internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell teaches readers how to shift their leadership to keep innovating, improving, and influencing others in today’s fast-paced world.

Change happens so rapidly today that leaders must be nimble and ready to adapt. Otherwise, they won't survive. International leadership expert John Maxwell says the key is to learn how to “leadershift.”

In Leadershift, John C. Maxwell helps listeners make leadership changes that will positively enhance their organizational and personal growth. He does this by sharing the 11 shifts he made over the course of his long and successful leadership career. Each shift changed his trajectory and set him up for new and exciting achievements, strengthening and sustaining his leadership abilities and making him the admired leadership expert he is today.

Among those leadershifts are "the Adaptive Shift from Plan A to Option A", "the Production Shift from Ladder Climbing to Ladder Building", and "the Influence Shift from Positional Authority to Moral Authority". Maxwell gives specific guidance to listeners about how to make these shifts in their own lives. Each one requires them to change the way they think, act, and ultimately lead so they can be successful in a world that never remains the same.

If you only read one leadership book...

This book is an amazing compilation of what one of the most talented and experienced leaders learned through his 70 + years. I had the pleasure of hearing John Maxwell speak years ago, and have read two of his previous books. It just keeps getting better and better. This book describes the evolution of a leader and I've never read anything quite like this. It's fascinating to hear him describe the changes and growth he realized over the years, and it is a great inspiration to develop into an extraordinary leader. After hearing this book I ordered 12 hard cover copies to go through with my management team.

This is a very interesting, insightful and full of life experience of John Maxwell. An important read / listen to any person that desire to see change in their life or business. Learn the secrets of success from a book based on real life experience not just some theories.

Good reason for shifts to address current day

Most authors draw examples from their previous works, that is true here, but with a number of new lessons. These new lessons can be revaluations that garner a modern perspective to emphasize the need to shift.

I liked the book and come away with renewed commitment to challenge past thinking.

There is a collection of conference speaker recordings at the end that are worth a listen.

Mature and considered

I love the ‘asides’ and self reflection parts of this book, it really feels like John is speaking with you directly. I’ve recommended this to many people and it will help me to help others. I enjoyed the closeness with the Author- Thank you Sir!

Uninspiring

I found the presenter and the material entirely dull and uninspiring, I couldn’t even find it within myself to listen to the full book for the first time since joining Audible.

insightful and thought provoking

I found this book thought provoking and insightful. John's anacdotes and stories help put into context his messages on challenging your thought processes. Messages I have taken from this are to be consistent, practicing what you say, and don't be afraid to make mistakes - that's how we learn. Not everything we do is easy, but it will get easier with time and practice.
