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 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.

The only thing that is constant in the world today is CHANGE. Dr. John C. Maxwell again proves why he is a #1 New York Times Bestselling Author! Written in the familiar Maxwell prose, Leadershift walks you through the eleven essential changes (shifts) you must make as a leader to positively enhance organizational and personal growth. The book is full of relatable and memorable information you can immediately apply to your personal and professional life to enhance your leadership skills. Maxwell brings immense clarity the importance of continuous learning, unlearning, and relearning in today’s ever-changing and fast-paced world.
Maxwell says, “If you want to be successful as a leader, you need to learn to become comfortable with uncertainty and make shifts continually. You need to be flexible and deal with uncertainty without losing focus. Leaders who leadershift must be like water.”
Maxwell’s explanation of what it means to “live on the other side of ‘yes’” is compelling and motivational. It’ll have you eager to jump on any challenge that comes your way...even challenges that would ordinarily scare you.
Leadershift is a MUST-READ for anyone who aspires to be a leader, in life or in their organization. It is particularly relevant to those who are presently in a leadership position but have lost touch with those they lead. Leadershift will refocus the reader on several important principles like humility, consistency, trustworthiness, relationships, equipping, attitude, generosity, listening, and encouragement (to name a few). Reading and applying the principals in this phenomenal book should be a pre-requisite to being placed in any leadership position in any organization in the public or private sector.
Leadershift is practical and enjoyable to read. It will add value to you so you can add value to others. I highly recommend investing in this book!
Maxwell defines leadershifting as “the ability and willingness to make a leadership change that will positively enhance organizational and personal growth.” Here are the specific changes he outlines:
• focus: from soloist to conductor,
• personal development: from goals to growth,
• cost: from perks to price,
• relational: from pleasing people to challenging people,
• abundance: from maintaining to creating,
• reproduction: from ladder climbing to ladder building,
• communication: from directing to connecting,
• improvement: from team uniformity to team diversity,
• influence: from positional authority to moral authority,
• impact: from trained leaders to transformational leaders, and
• passion: from career to calling.
Like all of Maxwell’s books, Leadershift offers shrewd advice in simple language. Some readers may find its advice formulaic. Others, myself included, think the formulas make the advice memorable and therefore easier to act on. Having followed Maxwell’s writing for more than 25 years, I can honestly say that anyone who takes his advice to heart will improve as a leader.
Though written for a broad audience, Leadershift contains illustrations and applications directly relevant to church leaders. “If you want to be successful as a leader,” Maxwell writes, “you need to learn to become comfortable with uncertainty and make shifts continually.” His book shows how to do precisely that.
