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.

Format: Paperback
Bev Flaxington has created a formula for change that works. In this delightful book she addresses the elements of change that are so often missed, or at the very least glossed over - the key one being 'human nature'. We are naturally resistant to change: it's a self-preservation mechanism. What Bev helps the reader explore is a way to step through change in a calm, measured way that cannot fail to enable people to get to where they truly want to. As a change facilitator and emotional intelligence specialist, this book dovetails perfectly with the work I do, and I will be putting this on my 'recommend' list for my clients. Thank you Bev for contributing a fabulous resource to the personal change industry, that is simple but incisive, meaningful yet practical, and with a friendly tone that encourages the reader to take a deep breath, and step out of that comfort zone.
