Rating
Lift identifies four questions that, when asked in any situation, will instantly give rise to a positive outlook, and explores the profound implications of each of these questions in-depth. The second edition includes two new chapters highlighting surprising applications of the fundamental state of leadership to situations on the job and off, as well as new stories, examples, supportive studies, and techniques for applying the lessons of Lift. Each person who learns these principles will lift themselves, lift others, and inspire others to spread that lifting as far as they can. Just as the Wright Brothers combined science and practice to finally achieve the dream of flight, Ryan and Robert Quinn combine research and personal stories to demonstrate how we can elevate ourselves and the situations and people around us to greater heights of integrity, openness, and achievement the psychological equivalent of aerodynamic lift, and the fundamental state of effective leadership.

Reviews

"While it is commonly thought that influence is some political force that we exert upon others to get our way, the Quinns show how truly effective leadership begins with a selfless and positive influence that radiates from our inner core--our best self." --Thomas Glocer, founder and Managing Partner, Angelic Ventures, LP, and former CEO, Thomson Reuters "The psychological state required for 'lift' encompasses the very essence of leadership in the public domain: a sense of being purpose centered, guided by values, caring for others, and focused on what can be done to improve programs, conditions, and services. Lift is all about making a difference--the spirit of public service in the 21st century." --Mary Ellen Joyce, Executive Director, Brookings Executive Education "Lift presents rigorous science in an accessible way and imparts practical wisdom that keeps the title's promise: it will lift you and the people around you." --R. Edward Freeman, Elis and Signe Olsson Professor of Business Administration, Darden School of Business, University of Virginia
