David Maxfield, New York Times bestselling author, keynote speaker, and social scientist for organizational change, joins Jesse to discuss his book Influencer: The New Science of Leading Change. Influencer combines the insights of behavioral scientists and business leaders with the stories of high-powered influencers from all walks of life.
This week Carey Nieuwhof is launching his brand new book called, Leading Change Without Losing It.
This book is a must read for any church leader who is wrestling with living into the dream that God has placed in their heart about their ministry and is experiencing the difficult job of navigating, communicating, and leading through when those around you seem to not be on board. I am not a lead pastor or a church planter, and even as a youth pastor in a multiple staff church context and have just a little sliver of the church that I am in leadership of, I found this book to be incredibly helpful and inspirational. As I read this book, God used Carey and this book to continue to refine some growing edges in my life. And the dumbest things is that I have made a career at smoothing out the opposition, and in my context I have so much less then the 10% that Carey refers to. As I have been on Sabbatical since the first of November I have been slowly and steadily coming to the conclusion that my devotional life apart from the spiritual performance or production that I am normally responsible for is turning out to be in need of dire repair. I am so blessed to be a part of a church that has allowed me to have a sabbatical and relieved to have had God bring this to my attention at this season of my life.
I am well aware that there will be time when I must get back after it, but I pray that it will be out of an overflow of the devotion life I have that is separate from my work!! May we all be leaders who get after the unique dream that God has put in our hearts and may we do it with all wisdom, discernment, humility and grace! In their new book Change Anything, authors Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler, all affiliated with the consulting firm VitalSmarts, present research and insights about how to change bad personal habits. Readers of MIT Sloan Management Review may recognize this finding from an article called  "How to Have Influence," which was written by Grenny and Maxfield, along with Andrew Shimberg, and published in the Fall 2008 issue of MIT Sloan Managment Review.
In that article, which won MIT SMR's Richard Beckhard Memorial Prize, Grenny, Maxfield and Shimberg reported that executives who used a combination of four or more different influence strategies to try to change a "nagging organizational problem" were "10 times more likely to succeed than those who relied on a single source of influence" in their change attempts. To learn more about these six sources of influence within organizations, read "How to Have Influence."     To learn more tips about changing personal bad habits, here's more information about the book Change Anything.


The Real Lessons From Kodak’s DeclineThe key lessons from Kodak’s failure to adapt to digital disruption aren’t what you think they are. Lessons from Kunduz: Prevent Disaster by Paying Attention to the Little PictureOrganizations that fail to heed their vulnerabilities are more likely encounter catastrophes. Managing Tensions Between New and Existing Business ModelsStaying competitive may mean exploring new business models — but watch out for internal tensions. Managerial authority is essential when decisions are time-sensitive, knowledge is concentrated and decisions need to be coordinated.
Managers today expect computing technology to augment rather than replace the work of humans.
Leaders who understand how people tick can get them working with change rather than against it. Instead of focusing on “overcoming resistance”, you find out how to work with human nature to engage people positively with change.
You learn why change fails and, more importantly, what you can do to ensure that people remain certain, purposeful, in control, connected and successful during times of change.
Simply put, the course equips you with a straightforward practical framework, and a set of tools and techniques that help you deliver a substantial return on investment in change. Participants can then go on to run ‘Embracing Change’ with their teams to achieve the double benefit of effective leadership working with receptive people.
And science has found that successful leaders, from CEOs to parents, have a common set of principles and skills that help create quick, profound, and lasting change in people and organizations. This book is written by a lead pastor and perfectly helpful for other lead pastors preparing to embark in some new and dangerous territory, even better if you have already jumped and are experiencing a little bit of pain and discomfort in this new plan.
Yet, I seem to always have that one voice, that one student who crushes me and causes me to hesitate, second guess myself, and stall out. Throughout this chapter there were many practical helps for leaders to stay encouraged and on focus. It is crazy that for the past 15 years my entire devotional life has been intimately married to my vocational calling as pastor.


I look forward to falling more and more in love with Jesus simply because there is so much reason to love Him. In turn, if you employ multiple "sources of influence" when attempting to change behavior, you are more likely to be successful. You then learn the leadership principles and behaviours required to work with the grain of human nature to get people working with you to accelerate change and make it stick.
Carey is a gifted pastor and leader and throughout these pages he gives us a little picture into his heart as he navigated two different leadership challenges. When I finished this book I had gained several more tools in my leadership tool box as well as sharpened and cleaned up some others that have gotten pretty rusty. I was so encouraged as I reflected on my own context as I read this book that the math really works well for me and maybe I should actually live into the math and be the leader that God has called me to be. But the one that rocked my world, happens to be the exact thing that God has been working on me for the last two months. But now that I have nothing to produce and no one to impress, and no chance of someone calling hypocrite, I find myself sitting across the table from Jesus in my morning devotions with little to say. If you are a leader who is in the middle of change and feeling like the ground under your feet is starting to erode and slip, then you MUST read this book.
And as I reflected on this, I realize that I always allow that minority voice to rock my world. He has given me a vision for my ministry context and some of it will be difficult to move into, but one kid or one parent is for sure not the reason to move forward. The point is simple, yet profound: Develop a devotional life that has little to do with work. People need the confidence (efficacy expectations) that they can handle every twist if the situation begins to spin out of control.
