Leadershift by John C. Maxwell In Leadershift, John C. Maxwell helps leaders gain the capacity and eagerness to create authority changes that will emphatically improve their organizational and individual development. He does this by sharing the eleven shifts he made over the course of his long and fruitful leadership career. Each shift changed his direction and set him up for new and exciting accomplishments, eventually reinforcing and supporting his leadership capacities and making him the respected administration master 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 particular guidance to pursuers almost how to make these shifts in their own lives.
