Demographic and technology shifts have created a new world of work.

The Leadership Mind Switch is both a field guide to managing and leading and a provocative overview of the era we are in — the fourth industrial revolution — leaning on facts, quotes and stories to keep you engaged.

  • Drive a workplace culture that is positive and future-proof
  • Embrace new technologies without sacrificing the human touch
  • Hire, fire, effectively performance manage
  • Optimize your leadership style for evolving time-off, face-time and communication needs

Leadership today is about character and communication, not corner offices.

“Simply put, it’s the best leadership book I’ve ever read.”

Robert Eckert
former CEO of Kraft and retired CEO from Mattel and Businessweek’s 2001 Executive of the Year

“The Leadership Mind Switch pushed me to forge my own thoughts on leading across generations – and to act now.”

Amy Carney
President, Research and Advertiser Sales, Sony Picture Television

“Last year’s technological frontier already looks small in the rear view mirror, and demographics are rapidly changing as well. Both bring fantastic opportunities and daunting challenges. Benton and Wright-Ford show us how to realize the first and overcome the second with the kind of wisdom that can’t be found using search engines.”
