“If you don't contradict yourself on a regular basis, then you're not thinking.”

JOHN C. MAXWELL

“The first definition of planning that I ever learned was this: planning is predetermining tomorrow’s results today.”

Leadershifting

This is the ability and willingness to make a leadership change that will positively enhance organizational and personal growth.

Leadershift is the act of nimbly adapting one’s leadership in the midst of rapid change.

  1. Continually learn, unlearn and relearn. Update yourself constantly.
  2. Value yesterday but live in today. Focus on current challenges, and leave the past glories to the past.
  3. Rely on speed but thrive on timing
  4. ...

The 4 Questions You Need to Ask Yourself

  • To learn something new. Ask yourself, “When’s the last time I learned something for the first time?”
  • To try something different. Ask yourself, “When’s the last time I did something for the first time?”
  • To find something better. Ask yourself, “When’s the ...

Thirty years ago, being a leader was all about being a soloist, being the one who can do everything on his own and doesn’t need a backing orchestra.

Today leadership is much more akin to being a conductor: the one who directs everyone in the right directio...

“You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” 

The Personal Development Shift: Goals to Growth

The four areas you need to focus on the most are the following: attitude, leadership skills, developing strong relationships, and equipping ot...

Great leaders don’t become leaders because they want to get something, but because they know they can give something.

Great leaders act before others, and they do more than others. Great leaders face their uncertainty and doubt, and they move through it to pave the way fo...

The Relational Shift: Pleasing People to Challenging People

Leadership, by definition, means challenging others to go beyond their comfort zone, and people don’t like to be uncomfortable.

In a fast-changing world, maintaining best practices should be balanced with creating, and leaders should teach their employees to stop thinking in terms of “I do what I have always done” and start accepting as a motto the “creative zone” adage: “I attempt to think what I have never ...

  • “How high can I go?” was the question of the ladder-climbers of the greedy 80s. Then it evolved to something a bit more human as “How high will others go with a little help?”
  • These ladder-holders recently became ladder-extenders, and started positing themselves the question: “how hi...

The Communication Shift: Directing to Connecting

The leaders of tomorrow are the leaders who connect today: they are trustful and talkative, they listen, they ask questions, and they have answers.

Become one of them, become a connector.

Diversity, according to Malcolm Forbes, is “the art of thinking independently together.”

And it is the hallmark of a great leader.

The Influence Shift: Positional Authority to Moral Authority

The 21st century is the age of virtuous leadership. The mere position of leader doos not grant one authority: we are more inclined to leave our jobs if our leaders are not morally authoritative as well.

Strive for moral authority, “the recognition of a person’s leaders...

Unlike trained leaders who both act and teach following by-the-book guidelines, transformational leaders encourage and inspire people around them to become more through their very existence

So be the change you want to see in the world.

The Passion Shift: Career to Calling

There are three kinds of people in the world:

  • those who merely do a job
  • those who want to have a career
