RETAILOBSERVER.COM MARCH 2019 14 C hange today is so rapid that leaders are being challenged to do a lot more than just stay the course. The secret of staying nimble and able and ready to adapt and survive, says internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell, is learning to "leadershift." In Leadershift, Maxwell shows leaders how they can gain the skills and readiness to make leadership changes that will enable them to keep innovating, improving, and influencing others. He shares the eleven shifts he made over the course of a successful leadership career. Each shift changed his trajectory, setting him up for fresh achievements while strengthening his leadership abilities and bringing him wide recognition as a leadership expert. The leadershifts include 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 for making each shift, changing the way we think, act, and lead so that we can remain successful in an ever-changing business world.
