"Full of counterintuitive advice, Pivot, Disrupt, Transform will shake up your thinking about what it takes to be a leader. Use its self-assessments to find your place in the journey. Use its tools to reroute your path to success." - Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell is Human

"Pivot, Disrupt, Transform is a refreshingly honest guide for leaders in today's world. Marcia Daszko will not just shake up some of your long-held beliefs about leadership-she will also inspire your thinking and move you to positive action. This book is a life changer for organizations everywhere."- Ken Blanchard, co-author of The New One Minute Manager and One Minute Mentoring

"Leaders' choice: struggle and fail or succeed. Pivot, Disrupt, Transform provokes the strategic thinking needed to discover why some fail while others innovate and scale. Read it today and choose more wisely." -Colonel Debra M. Lewis, USA Ret. West Point Pioneer, Positivity & Mental Toughness Expert

"I found Pivot, Disrupt, Transform to be a very refreshing, provocative, and sometimes contrarian read. Having been an executive in a very traditionally structured, management-by-objective driven, manufacturing industry a key take-away for me was that the business practices, processes, and disciplines that have made us successful in the past, will not necessarily guarantee our continued future success. This is a story about transformation and disruption, about recognizing and embracing change rather than ignoring and resisting it. This book fully recognizes the immense generation shift taking place with millennials, and accepts that what influences and motivates them is significantly different than any generation that preceded them. Most importantly, the book provides actionable tools to help drive this change. This is an important read for anyone really interested in developing a highly functioning and modern business organization." -Dave Zuchowski, President of Hyundai, 2007-2017

"This book helps to see that leadership is a choice, not a birthright, destiny, or even an obligation - and that life, professionally and organizationally, really begins a step beyond the edges of our comfort zones. Filled with sage advice about taking the roads less traveled, looking at the status quo from new perspectives, and embarking on the path that will make the difference between a well-run bankruptcy and prosperity." - Barry Z. Posner, bestselling author of The Leadership Challenge

"As the challenge of global competition accelerates, today's leaders search for fresh and concrete approaches that motivate their markets and delight their employees. Marcia Daszko provides a clear and much-needed path that starts with knowledge and leads to enthusiastic commitment in work and genuine satisfaction through dramatically improved collaboration with customers, partners , and employees. Those who seek a better way to create success across their enterprise by applying courage, understanding and purpose will find Marcia's book of great and immediate value." - Vice Admiral Kevin P. Green, USN, VP of IBM (Ret.)

"So often, managers and leaders find themselves in seriously uncharted waters. What seemed to have worked in the past doesn't and it's at that point where they recognize the need to do something different; they just don't know what different is. This book is an exceptional resource that will help leaders better understand how real leadership works; how to become comfortable with disruptive change; and how to create that change and thereby create your future. The alternative is to throw random solutions (i.e., best practices) at problems and hope for the best. If you're looking to open your mind to alternative understanding, this book is for you." - Dr. Kenneth M. Macur, President, Medaille College, NY

"This book deeply entices you to learn and turn around your thoughts and actions. You will see and experience the power of transformational change! Get on board and enjoy the ride!" - Kenji Furushiro, President, Pasona N. A.

"Marcia Daszko's insights go beyond the obvious to root causes. Many problems in corporations and businesses could be alleviated by a true understanding of what Marcia has to offer in her latest book. W. Edwards Deming said it and those who understood prospered. Marcia continues the work." - Priscilla Petty, Interviewer and Producer, The Deming of America
