    If there's anything I've learned during the social distancing period and shutdown incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic is that feeling helpless sucks! And when I saw this book on Netgalley, I immediately reached out because John Maxwell has written extensively on leadership drawing from real life examples and the Bible- so reading up on the strides Rob Hoskins has made as well was a major boost.

And when I saw this book on Netgalley, I immediately reached out because John Maxwell has written extensively on leadership drawing from real life examples and the Bible- so reading up on the strides Rob Hoskins has made as well was a major boost. In the book, there's the story about 5 frogs where it's told that 4 frogs decided to jump, how many were left? And if you are like me, you probably said 1 and that's where you and I miss the lesson on the difference between decision and action/ intention and action. The 4 decided but did they follow through on that decision? We don't know so we can't say that they truly jumped leaving behind the 1. That is so human, we believe that once we have a decision then that's as good as acting upon it- but change is mobile, it involves movement- action and throughout the book, the two authors share practical insights on how to go about this. The greatest take away from this book is that if you read it to the end and cast it aside, that's on you, and if you read it and draw from the lessons shared here and actualize them, then that's also on you. Thanks Netgalley for the eARC.

    This is not your typical John Maxwell book. First, it is not specifically about business leadership, teamwork or professional development. Second, it is co-written with Rob Hoskins. The book was written to encourage and equip the reader to be a catalyst for transformation your family, workplace and community, through eight streams of influence: government, education, business, religion, media, arts, sports, and healthcare. They tell us that transformation is possible for anyone willing to learn This is not your typical John Maxwell book. First, it is not specifically about business leadership, teamwork or professional development. Second, it is co-written with Rob Hoskins. The book was written to encourage and equip the reader to be a catalyst for transformation your family, workplace and community, through eight streams of influence: government, education, business, religion, media, arts, sports, and healthcare. They tell us that transformation is possible for anyone willing to learn and live good values, value people, and collaborate with others to create a positive values culture. The author’s motivations for the book were twofold. First, they wanted to motivate and equip the reader to make a difference right now in your community. Second, they wanted to encourage the reader to change your community with others. They tell us that when this happens, there is potential for a movement to be birthed. Throughout the book, they share stories of change that they have observed in several communities as a result of their organizations OneHope, EQUIP, and the John Maxwell Leadership Foundation, many of them in countries outside of the United States, such as Guatemala. A key concept discussed in the book is that of transformation tables, which they discuss in detail. The most dramatic, penetrating, and long-lasting changes the authors have seen have come around a table with a small group of people. They tell us that if you want to help people to transform their lives, then you will want to learn how to gather small groups around a table and get them talking about good values and how to apply them to their everyday lives. They state that learning good values using transformation tables helps people to live better lives. When this happens, the possibility of alleviating poverty, disease, hunger, illiteracy, and other problems within a community increase. Other topics discussed in the book are being a catalyst for change, collaboration, values, starting a movement, trust, transformation conversations, storytelling and hope. The authors point you to the ChangeYourWorld.com website for additional resources. Below are 20 helpful quotes from the book: 1. To help others live a better life, you don’t focus on their problems. You focus on positive solutions that provide a better way for them to live. 2. The people who change the world are those who want to and don’t wait to. 3. When you add courage to your leadership, then you create opportunities for change, which in turn changes culture. 4. The biggest gap between failure and success is the distance between I should and I did. 5. To lead change, to be a catalyst, you have to believe you can make a difference. 6. When you become a catalyst for change, one of the most significant things you can do is invite others to join you in the cause. 7. Now is the time to do something. It’s okay to start even when you don’t have all the answers. Do what you know to do. 8. The change cycle goes like this: I experience something so life-changing that I change. I share something so life-changing that you change. We facilitate something so life-changing that others change. 9. It can be deeply satisfying to be part of something larger than yourself. 10. Transformation begins with influence, and influence always flows from the top down, like a waterfall, not upward. For transformation to happen, the leaders must be involved. 11. The bottom line is that transformation begins in an individual, grows in community, and impacts a society. But the process always starts with partnerships based on common ground. 12. The ultimate goal of any movement is to create a better future. 13. You cannot make a difference or change your world in a positive way unless you build everything you do on good values. They are the single most important part of any transformational movement. 14. Values are principles that guide your decisions and behaviors. Nothing impacts your life every day more than your values. 15. Transformation is a just cause worthy of commitment. 16. There are few things in life more important than valuing people. 17. What you do, why you do it, and how you do it are based on your values. 18. No matter what you want to do—whether it’s raising a family, building a business, or changing your world—you need to develop trust. That comes only with good values. 19. You may be able to impress people from a distance, but you can impact them only from up close. 20. If you don’t measure what you’re doing, you won’t be able to get your great idea to give you the results you desire.

    Its hard not to love anything by John Maxwell - I've listened to him and read him for many years and he is one of my favorite go-to's for leadership. This book is phenomenal - because it is so needed, now!! Whatever your worldview, or perspective, this one is a must read if you want to be a change agent.

This book is phenomenal - because it is so needed, now!! Whatever your worldview, or perspective, this one is a must read if you want to be a change agent. It is current and relevant - filled with lots of great stories to inspire - and several that just happened during the current pandemic. Not only that - but this becomes interactive if, after reading, you utilize the resources John and Rob and their teams are providing and get involved in a Transformation Table. That's where your change can happen and then it can spread to the world - we can change the world, one person at a time, starting with you. If you read only one John Maxwell book - this is the one. That's saying something because I have several others of his as favorites as well. My advance digital copy was made available through NetGalley in exchange for an objective review, without obligation. I still bought the hard copy anyway - love his stuff and this one, that much. Read it in like 2 1/2 days!

If you want to make an effective presentation, try incorporating a vivid story. Stories captivate an audience’s imagination. They’re sticky and memorable, and inspire empathy. If you want people to be really engaged with what you’re saying, then think of a personal anecdote from your own experience that illustrates your point. That will be much more compelling than a dry theoretical explanation.

    I was fortunate to receive an advance reader copy of this outstanding book by the premier leadership authority of our time, John Maxwell, and Rob Hoskins. Leadership, at its core, means mobilizing others to lead change - ideally positive change. This book takes the reader through the process of mobilizing others to lead change. There are ample examples of people who have actually done this, following these principles.
