‘LeaderShift’ takes away the mystique that often surrounds the ‘art’ of leadership and delivers a fresh dose of optimism and a sense of real possibility to leaders everywhere. Peter O’Brien provides managers and executives at all levels with insights into why businesses perform below expectations, and – more importantly – what can be done about it. ‘LeaderShift’ is the answer for all of those leaders who have been struggling to find and activate the leadership ‘light switch’ in the people who work for them. “Peter O’Brien’s astute observations here align with so many of my own learnings. I particularly like the neuroscience insights on leadership, as well as the practical way that Peter brings his leadership lessons to life. Peter refers to his frequent interactions with people who have studied the key elements of being a great leader but show little track record of making big things happen. He then provides a very practical series of action steps that show how to get to big ideas, generate and take accountability, and bring about high-quality execution – the hallmark of strong leaders! I highly recommend this book.” Roger Eaton, President, KFC, Chief Operations Officer, Yum!
