Literature of Leadership - Change Your World

CHANGE YOUR WORLD: How Anyone, Anywhere Can Make a Difference. John C. Maxwell, Rob Hoskins. (2021, Kindle Edition)

Change Your World is for anyone who wants to be a difference-maker in the lives of others … be it in your family, your workplace, or in your community. Written by world-renown author and leadership expert, John Maxwell, along with Rob Hoskins, a global development leader and president of OneHope, this book presents a road map for transformational change.

Each of the nine chapters is infused with inspirational stories of individuals who have made a difference in the lives of others. The chapters take the reader on an aspirational journey in four phases.

  • In Phase 1 (Chapters 1 and 2), the focus is on how to give yourself permission to be a difference-maker and become a catalyst for change.

  • In Phase 2 (Chapters 3 and 4), the authors emphasize the importance of collaboration in creating positive momentum for change.

  • In Phase 3 (Chapters 5 and 6), the power of having and living positive values is reinforced; and the concept of “transformational tables” is introduced as a tool for building shared values and trusting relationships with others.

  • In Phase 4 (Chapters 7 and 8), the authors provide guiding principles for how to lead positive conversations, and for ensuring that what gets done gets measured (in that order).

In Chapter 9, the final chapter, the authors invite the reader to take the next step, lead a transformational table, and see where the journey leads. In this regard, readers are directed to the authors’ website, where additional resources are available for those inspired to do so.

This is truly an inspirational and enriching read.
