There are 8 key attitude and action shifts that every great leader makes.
From entitlement to honor. From passive to passionate. From unreliable to consistent. Are you willing to make these shifts (and more) and be ready when the "next up" call comes?
The Millennial generation is poised to do something. We can either learn, grow, ask for help, and lead honorably into the future, or we can passively wait, feeling entitled for the keys to eventually be given to us. We can do better than that! Lets take the initiative and rise to the challenge.
The future will be filled with leadership transitions at not only the highest levels in businesses, churches, and organizations all over the world, but also at regular, everyday places. Who will be ready to lead existing movements, groups, and causes? Or who will be ready to start the new ones?
Using practical, biblical, and contemporary examples and lessons, this book will help existing and burgeoning leaders pinpoint the areas of their lives where they still need to make the shift and learn to lead more effectively.
Brianna4 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: Next Up: 8 Shifts Great Young Leaders MakeMarch 28, 2017BriannaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Due to my position as a manager and leader, I chose to read Next Up: 8 Shifts Great Young Leaders Make by Jonathan Pearson. The title alone intrigued me as I enter a new realm of my profession; I hoped Next Up would provide some insights to guide my growth as a leader.
In Next Up, Pearson expounds upon 8 traits that are often applied to the millennial generation: entitlement, unreliability, dissension, conformity, pride, passivity, selfishness and prematurity. He challenges readers to move from these characteristics to honor, consistency, cooperation, integrity, humility, passion, love and patience. I particularly appreciated the chapters about changing unreliability to consistency and changing pride to humility. Pearsons challenges led me to think of personal examples that indicated a need for growth.
While Next Up is easy to read, Pearsons novice experience as an author is very apparent. At times, Pearsons writing is repetitive and a bit monotonous. However, in the chapter on consistency, Pearson notes that writing a book is challenging for him. Therefore, I do not think the writing devalues the content of the book. I will likely read Next Up again in the future, as a check up on my progress making these important shifts.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in order to write an honest, unbiased review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I could not stop reading this book! I picked it up on vacation, and could not put it down. I really think I did this because it was a book that I can relate with as a fellow millennial. I know you will benefit from it as well, but only if you put these shifts into practice. You will see those in the book so I do not want to spoil it too much!ÃÂ In an age where leadership is declining and degrading, may you rise up and be a Next Up leader. The first shift you need to make is to buy this book!
