"Dr. Hlupics insights are truly groundbreaking. What makes her ideas, which are brilliantly described in The Management Shift, even more meaningful is how she has integrated them into her 6 Box Leadership tool. The result is that executives and consultants can now easily implement 6 Box Leadership principles in practice, so that organisations can benefit from tomorrows management today."
"Finally we get a book that truly describes the urgency to go from traditional management focus to leadership. As Professor John P Kotter at Harvard so wisely puts it: the worlds is over managed and under lead. Now your book, The Management Shift, gives us important insight and concrete tools."
