HELPING BUSINESSES SHIFT IN DIFFICULT ECONOMIC TIMES
Beverly Flaxington, a Gold-Award winning author, has released her newest book, Make the SHIFT: The Proven Five-Step Plan to Success for Corporate Teams. This groundbreaking book uses the trademarked change process, The S.H.I.F.T. Model ™ to help businesses and teams meet their goals.
“I developed this model after almost two decades of corporate consulting with partnerships, teams and large corporate clients. It serves as a simple, five-step methodology to help any group establish their goals, work through their obstacles, identify their human capital issues and find the alternatives that are right for their group. Most importantly, unlike other consulting approaches, it gives guidance for specific steps on implementation,” says Flaxington.
Many different groups of people seeking ways to work together can benefit from this effective approach to help uncover their obstacles and create workable and effective plans for success. The book helps these groups meet their objectives.
The book has been selected by Suffolk University in Boston MA for use in its Leadership and Social Responsibility course. This unique course was implemented under the guidance of Associate Dean Laurie Levesque of the Sawyer Business School at Suffolk University to “help undergraduates learn the importance and synergies of partnerships between for-profits and not-for-profits, with the hope in their future roles, they may build similar bridges”, according to Associate Dean Levesque
“This semester we are proud to use apply the change model with Cradles to Crayons and the Neponset Valley Humane Society as our featured not-for-profits,” says Flaxington. “The model, as outlined in the new book, makes it so easy for a team to come together and work through issues in order to reach their most desired goals.”
Associate Dean Levesque added, “The SHIFT Model™ is an effective process by which our student teams explore complex real-world challenges, develop solutions, and prepare implementation recommendations. It's an opportunity for our students to think as leaders and balance a not-for-profit's very real resource constraints with their organizational aspirations using this proven change model.”
