JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!July 7, 2019JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are some books that come to you at the exact time that you need them. This is one of those books for me.
I'm someone who hates confrontation. I avoid it as much as possible. So, becoming a department manager was a challenge for me in some ways. I knew I would have to make some changes to how I worked, but I wasn't sure what changes, or how.
John Maxwell does an amazing job of laying out the ways in which someone in a leadership position needs to change attitudes, behaviors, and ways of thinking.
I think the prevailing point he makes is that leadership is not about you. It's about the people you are leading, and the organization you are leading. When you look past the title of leader you can change your thinking to help others grow and reach a common goal on a common journey.
I read this on my Nook, and I highlighted through this book like a mad woman. There are so many great nuggets of inspiration and wisdom that I just wanted to print them all out and plaster them all over my office. I didn't do that, but I wanted to.
If you are in a leadership role of any kind, even unofficially, I highly suggest this book.
K Fischer5 Stars Out Of 5A great book!March 2, 2019K FischerIn Leadershift, John Maxwell shares with readers the various shifts he made over the course of his career that enabled him to better lead those around him. Throughout, he reminds us that we must shift from focusing on oneself as a leader to focusing on the team around you in order to get the best output. I believe the ideas he presents are very relevant as we see our culture shifting, and recognizing that we must change as leaders in order to create an environment where people are willing (and excited) to follow.
The book is written similar to an outline, so each chapter has a number of lists to go along with the topic. I am sure many people appreciate this style, but I found it to be a little distracting at times. That being said, I would still read this book again because I took a lot away from it.
I really liked the message and the ideas that he presented. With all of the experience he has, Maxwell brings a lot of wisdom with the topic of leadership. I am not currently in a leadership position, but am glad to have these ideas in mind as I prepare to go back to work. I would recommend this book to anyone who is currently in a leadership role (no matter how big or small) or those who are interested in working their way up to a position of leadership.
I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher.
