At the heart of John C. Maxwell's brilliant and inspiring book is a simple premise: To do well in life, we must first think well. But can we actually learn new mental habits? Thinking for a Change answers that with a resounding "yes"and shows how changing your thinking can indeed change your life.
Drawing on the words and deeds of many of the world's greatest leaders and using interactive quizzes, this empowering book helps you assess your thinking style, guides you to new ones, and step by step teaches you the secrets of:
...and much more.

- Focused Thinking-removing mental clutter and distractions to realize your full potential
- Creative Thinking-stepping out of the "box" and making breakthroughs
