How many of the leadership shifts have you made?
There are 8 key attitude and action shifts every great leader makes. From entitlement to honor. From passive to passionate. From unreliable to consistent. And five others. Are you willing to make these shifts and be ready when the “next up” call comes?
No matter how old you are or where you find yourself on the “leadership spectrum,” it’s never too early (or too late) to hone your leadership readiness. Across generations, from the highest levels at businesses, churches, and organizations to the regular, everyday places—the world needs great leaders. Who will be ready to lead existing movements, groups, and causes? Or who will be ready to start the new ones?
Using practical lessons and biblical and contemporary examples, this book will help burgeoning and existing leaders pinpoint the areas of their lives where they still need to make the shift toward effective leadership.

The leadership tide is constantly changing, and Jonathan does a great job outlining what it’s going to take to lead as a next generation leader going forward. One of the big questions today is transitioning leadership from one generation to the next. Next Up meets that challenge head on with a practical plan you can put into practice!
