"The Management Shift gives us a language and a way of seeing the world, and an opportunity for a different kind of dialogue, which I think is helpful in a world of health and care. We have to go in this direction. I think we have no choice."
"It is practical."
"You pulled together a very broad set of ideas in a powerful way. From the very micro to the macro. This must have been an unbelievably hard task. Thank you for sharing it with me. I have mentioned it to colleagues."
"I read through your book and enjoyed reading it. The focus on leaders as collaborative and engaging is a wonderful insight. Our ideas are very close to yours. I enjoyed the book very much"
"Vlatka in ‘The Management Shift’ absolutely addresses the priority for business leaders: how to engage, motivate and inspire people so that retaining and attracting talent is not just a prerequisite but the core source of competitive advantage. Grounded in rigorous and extensive research, Vlatka presents a comprehensive model to benchmark any organisation’s current state and then identify both a strategy and action plan to address weaknesses and build on strengths thereby achieving the Management Shift. The direct correlation between organisational culture, employee engagement and financial success is made clear and Vlatka ensures this is not just the domain of the HR team but an imperative for the CEO."
"Your book is a truly amazing piece of work. Your were able to write and proof what I have been thinking for a while but was unable to express. Over the years I experienced many different styles of management, including level 1 and level 5, and it is truly amazing how you made that into a system so that it can: 1) be easily recognized, 2) be inspired to change and 3) actually implement the change if wanted. "The Management Shift" is definitely my book of choice in leadership and company policy design."
"Professor Vlatka Hlupic's book "The Management Shift" is nothing less than a treasure of a book! Her call-out to create positive ripples in the world of management, to bring purpose, heart and passion back to work – and examples and guidance of how to make it happen - is not only highly aspirational and inspirational, it is also very relevant and important at a time where many companies experience employee engagement hitting rock bottom and drop in productivity following as a consequence. It is my hope and belief that this book will be a huge wake-up call to managers and business leaders around the world, that it will generate wonderful ripple-effects of enthusiasm, innovation and collaboration in the organizations they lead and that purpose-driven organizations will become more the norm than the exception. There are many great leadership books out there, but as far as I am aware of, none that so extensively and elegantly describes the need for change and how to make it happen, and at the same time, it leaves the readers a bit more shiny eyed and hopeful for the future."
"The Management Shift is a groundbreaking manual for enlightened leadership."
"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.
As an operative CEO at Innovation Norway, the Norwegian Government's most important instrument for innovation and development of Norwegian enterprises and industry, I will have great benefit of your book describing the challenges I meet as a leader, but more important, challenges facing our customers.
As you say: “In business management, there is a problem. There is also an historic opportunity. And now, there is a major breakthrough.” Indeed it is, and your book gives me the motivation to believe in this, and to be part of driving the change. Thank you.
“For any business leader looking to get more from their people, this book is a must-read.”

"For many of us writing about the principles of enlightened leadership over the years, the rate of progress has been frustrating slow. Vlatka Hlupic in 'The Management Shift' has achieved a potentially significant breakthrough by linking theory to practice on how to transform workplaces. She takes management teams through the levels of progress that leaders and their teams experience as they move towards higher levels of engagement, in an approach where people are rightly viewed as the source of all value".

"In the aftermath of the financial crisis mangers had to confront harsh criticism and blame. It has become clear that a renewal of management is required for regaining the credibility and legitimacy to address the huge challenges we face in our economies and our societies. The good news: management doesn’t need wholesale reinvention; it just needs to rediscover its true vocation and priorities. Vlatka Hlupic provides a timely and important contribution in this field by combining the Drucker inspired systematic approach to the discipline of management with latest thinking and relevant tools for practitioners".

"The Management Shift" shows the big picture and at the same time, offers a proven method related to how to tackle the route to unfold human potential in organisations for sustained prosperity.”
"Vlatka's insights on how to put innovative theory into practice is a true step change in management. She shows many cases that it is actually possible to transform organisations to become more profitable while at the same time to become more engaging for all employees. She provides clear guidance on how to successfully create the future and sets the new management standards for the digital information age."
“I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Hlupic including co-authoring several whitepapers as part of the Management Information Exchange (MIX). I am thrilled at her success in capturing a powerful and much need corporate transformation model wonderfully described in ‘The Management Shift’ ”.
"Use the powerful 6-Box Model and its lessons from Vlatka Hlupic’s new book to put your team on the fast track to success. Outstanding, unique work from one of today’s most important management consultants! Excellent!."
"In the new era, business leaders need to shift from a focus on profits to leading their organizations with a purpose and a set of values that engender passion and pride among their employees and customers. This book sets an agenda and a framework to guide business leaders in this important quest."
"Vlatka Hlupic makes the case for fundamental change in management theory. She is posing some questions that should have been asked already a long time ago, the answers to which are not only relevant to business, but to all those institutions (business, governmental and NGO’s) that dominate our human lives in the 21st century. This is a book that shows the way, not just to better economic results, but to a better society".
"The field of leadership development is presently in need of fresh thinking. In this book Vlatka Hlupic offers her own contribution in the form of her '6 Box Leadership Model' for consideration. All those who are interested in the present state and future direction of the field will find in the pages this book a fresh and thought-provoking approach. I warmly welcome it".
"Dr. Hlupic's 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 organizations can benefit from tomorrow's management today"
“This is an inspiring book. Dr Hlupic makes a compelling case for radical changes in how large companies work, and she charts a very clear course for a new type of leadership that seeks to harness the talents and commitment of all employees.”
"The 6 Box Leadership diagnostics and management methods will give your organization everything it needs to unleash the creative power of your organization and win in today’s fast paced, hyper-competitive world. Without this new way of management, firms will be stuck in the past and hopelessly left behind by competitors who adopt the 6 Box approach.”
