Great book for work teams to utilize, not too complex or difficult to follow but seems like it would be very effective. This would be very appropriate for a wide variety of businesses as well as the hospital where I work as a nurse. We constantly change things, put together teams, work groups. I did pass this on to our administrative director thinking she might like it as well! We might be able to put it to use!

We have all set goals only to have them “crash and burn”. Beverly Flaxington tell us why – US. Many times we are the problem why we cannot achieve our goals. She outlines a clear path to help us get to where we want to go. Of course, the first step is knowing where we want to go in the first place and a lot of that has to do with us understanding who we are. But, as she points out, it isn’t enough to set goals, we have to understand what is keeping us from getting there (obstacles – both in us a ...more

A brief overview of the 'SHIFT' system and how to implement it. There aren't too many examples of this being put into action, outside of anecdotal evidence from the author, but it seems actionable enough. It's really meant to be worked through, rather than read in a sitting.

If you need to get from here to there in some or many aspects of your life, this author aims to show you how. She specifically wants to take account of human nature, which many purveyors of books on change simply gloss over. By the time you decide that you need to change you have already been programmed to behave in a certain way so to a certain extent you must unlearn behaviours – retrain your mind. This is extremely difficult. I found particularly helpful the passage on highlighting the obstac ...more
