    John C. Maxwell is a fantastic author with a great mission and many year of experience. He is encouraging us all to make a LEADERSHIFT rather than focus on leadership. What is a leader shift you ask? Well, it is making an effort to support all those around you and help them to the top of the mountain with you. Being a leader you are doing just that, you lead the way. You pave the trail and tell others how you did it. By creating a leader shift, you are working with those around you to encourage, ...more

He goes on to enumerate eleven specific changes, which he illustrates with stories from his own leadership journey. He also provides practical advice to help readers make necessary shifts in their own leadership practices.

    A book filled with critical Concepts about leadership. Though the premise of the book appears to be for those making a transition to leadership it is far from exclusive to those readers. I believe all leaders, aspiring, new or well established can find some helpful words inside of this cover.
    John Maxwell's ability to simplify the concepts to be so unmistakable is astounding. I greatly appreciate not only the anecdotes of his journey but also the examples made up to see more clearly the change he

    I have been a fan of John Maxwell’s books for quite some time. I was so thrilled to be chosen as a member of a launch team for his most latest book called Leadershift. Each one of his books is great to read and filled with a lot of wisdom. You definitely get more than you bargained for and then some. This book is no exception.

    In the book, Mr. Maxwell states that “good leaders are supposed to shift from being self-focused to others-focused.” Being a leader is not just about you. It is taking the

    This book is essential for anyone in a leadership position. John Maxwell delivers some hard truths, but also inspires hope for the future of collaborative leadership. Personally, this is exactly where I am in how I want to lead others.

    I love seeing a book that shifts the focus of leadership from "I" to "Us." His explanation of this is shifting our mindset from that of soloist to one of conducting. While we can easily go this journey alone, it is much more worthwhile and can be bigger than we ev

    The book gives examples of 11 leadershifts that encourages leaders to continue to grow and remain relevant today. These leadershifts (if embraced) will change the way you think, act, and lead.

    Leadershift is an amazing book! John C. Maxwell talks from the heart and really wants people to excel in becoming the best leaders they can be! This books discusses how leaders need to make a "shift" within their own thinking and embrace change.

    We live in turbulent and unsettled times. Traditional norms are falling by the wayside. Days like these require new ways of thinking, especially for both formal and informal leaders.

    In this book, John C. Maxwell asks us to consider reframing or “leadershifting” prevalent cultural thinking as leaders. Each chapter takes a specific prevailing norm and gives us a contrasting fresh perspective and wisdom, drawing upon his decades of life experience.

    I have followed John Maxwell for 24 years now. Starting with his book "Developing the Leader Within You". This book "Leadershift" has brought on a whole new meaning to leadership. His quote "You cannot be the dame, think the same and act the same if you hope to be successful in a world that dos not remain the same" caused me to really think about how I lead my sons, how I lead the groups I have, and how I lead my life in general.
