Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When it comes to goal setting, most people are pretty familiar with the SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound) method of goal planning. The SMART system of goal setting has helped millions of people achieve their goals. Still millions more have utilized the SMART method and still been unable to accomplish their goals. Author, professor and business consultant Beverly Flaxington believes the reason for this is that the SMART simply doesn't go far enough and has introduced her SHIFT model with her book, MAKE YOUR SHIFT.

Let's take a look first at the SHIFT acronym;
SPECIFY the desired outcome
HIGHLIGHT obstacles and categorize
IDENTIFY the human factor
FIND alternatives
TAKE disciplined action

The book is written in two parts. Part 1, the first five chapters, explains in detail, the five steps in the easy to follow SHIFT model. Part 2: Tips and Tools for Greater Effectiveness in Life, is seven chapters of life lessons Flaxington has learned as a coach that work well in conjunction with the SHIFT model to create the kind of life you want to lead.

I really like Flaxington's writing style. She does a very good job of explaining things in crystal clear detail. I've also read one of Flaxington's other books, Understanding Other People and it has become one of my favorites.

If you've had trouble obtaining your goals utilizing the SMART method, making the shift might be just what you need to get to the next level.

Make Your SHIFT identifies the challenges and outlines the action steps needed to reach your goals. I am successfully applying the SHIFT as a professional, a parent and a partner. It's easy to use and it works when getting there from here seems overwhelming. Just follow the steps to shift your outcomes. Read, Apply, Repeat!

Format: Paperback
This is a book for the individual, group, company, etc...who is trying to become better in that which they are involved in. Saving time, moving forward in greater unity as well as overcoming obstacles are just a portion of what the reader can learn from this well written book. The book is written in two parts that can stand alone on their own. The first part deals with a step-by-step process on how to implement the S.H.I.F.T. Model in a more structured manner. The second part is less structured while still learning how to make this process of shifting effective within one's life.
There are great page breaks with motivational quotes as well as fantastic charts for the reader to use in helping to make their own shift. This is more than just a book filled with words, rather a book with a leader allowing the reader to follow its outline. While the reader must do their own part in making this work, author Beverly D. Flaxington has given the reader the ability to do so with all the tools provided within this book.
This book helps to break down what might otherwise be an overwhelming task so the reader can truly take action and make their life more productive and enjoyable. I truly enjoyed this book and found it to be very helpful and insightful. If you are looking for a way to improve your life, family, job, etc...then you owe it to yourself to read this book and use the charts provided to make the shift.
This book was provided by Readers Favorite for my honest review.

While scanning for team management & goal setting books I came across this gem. You see immediately that the author knows her stuff. The approach is confident, clear, well illustrated with examples from business & academia. As an author myself, I appreciate a well written and well edited book. This is right up there with the best.

Review by Teri Sica, LICSW

As a psychotherapist and coach in private practice for over 28 years, also a speaker and talk show host, I am more than impressed with Beverly Flaxington's book!

This book offers solid, applicable tools, rich content, and spells out CLEARLY the steps that result in making authentic change happen!

Beverly's book shows her at her BEST, with 25 years of expertise in helping people to meet their goals.

Her approach is direct, clear, and loaded with great insights! Her message about "change" is also very ENCOURAGING. She does a beautiful job of conveying that YOU DO have control over the process of making change happen as long as "you" take responsibility.

I was also impressed with how she highlighted the importance of exploring our own resistance and obstacles, as well as understanding our own individual unique approach to change.

The "Shift" process that Beverly designed here is truly easy to use and really works. In fact, I am recommending this book to my own clients. It is packed full of ideas and ways to make change happen not just temporarily but PERMANENTLY.

I will be recommending Beverly's book to my own clients, and inviting her to speak about her book on my weekly radio show, "Discovering Authenticity". I think her book speaks so well to my working philosophy which is that challenges are opportunities that lead to authentic growth and change IF we utilize them!! GREAT GREAT BOOK!!!! GREAT WORK BEVERLY!
