Meet the Editors


Narrated by Kimberly White

Kimberly White is a freelance writer who spent 12 years overpaying on Manhattan rent in order to take her five children to free museums, and recently relocated to a small farm town in Illinois to focus on writing. She is a certified Arbinger presenter and former research assistant to the founder, Terry Warner. Her 9 months of research for this book included dozens of hours working alongside nursing home employees in offices, vans, patient rooms, and kitchens.



Foreword by The Arbinger Institute

The word 'arbinger' is the ancient French spelling of 'harbinger': one who indicates or foreshadows what is to come; a forerunner. The Arbinger Institute is a harbinger of change.

Arbinger is a worldwide consulting company and think tank comprising people who have been trained in business, law, economics, philosophy, family dynamics, education, coaching, and psychology. The members of Arbinger come from diverse cultural backgrounds and from all religious and nonreligious traditions and belief systems. What they share is a deep understanding and passion for the ideas underlying Arbinger's work--a compelling model of human understanding and motivation that explains the ubiquitous problem of self-deception and how to solve it.

Arbinger's mission grows out of the work of an international team of scholars that broke new ground in solving the age-old problem of self-deception, or what was originally called "resistance." Arbinger was founded to translate this important work on self-deception--and its solution--into practical effect for individuals, families, and organizations worldwide.

Arbinger has grown from a small organization with only ten facilitators and staff members in 2000 to an international organization with over 300 facilitators, coaches, and staff members offering public courses, consulting and coaching services, and tailored organizational interventions. The members of Arbinger are mobilized to help organizations, communities, individuals, families, educators, those in the criminal justice system, and helping professionals. Arbinger's clients range from individuals who are seeking help in their lives to many of the largest companies and governmental institutions in the world. Among these organizational clients are Microsoft, IBM, ATT, Lockheed Martin, Nike, Harley-Davidson, Intel, Nokia, USA Today, Cornell University, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Justice Department, the Energy Department, and the Treasury.

Endorsements

The Shift is a transformative book—a rare view of the defining element of corporate culture, the heart of mankind. It shares what executives most need to learn, first about living, then about leading. It thoroughly inspired, touched, and taught me.”
—Roy E. Christensen, founder and former President and Chairman, Beverly Enterprises, and Chairman, The Ensign Group

“This is truly a rare book. On page after page we encounter people living the way we all know we should but often don't. Who could have known it would be so inspiring—and so thoroughly humbling—to enter the lives of such people? The effect is transforming. As we meet these ordinary people we finally know whom we want to be like: we want to be like them. I don't see how I can be the same team member, leader, or person after encountering this book. A complete inspiration to read and genuinely mind-changing.”
—Laura Hart, Vice President, Business Operations, Qualcomm Technologies

“I work in a high-tech industry and yet I've never encountered a book that was more relevant to my work. It is a beautiful expression of Arbinger principles—displayed in the most profound dimensions of life—and its effect is truly like magic.
The Shift is simultaneously inspiring, touching, and profound. I don't know anyone who wouldn't be deeply taught—and moved—by the remarkable journey found in this book. Few books are truly ‘must-read,' but The Shift is absolutely one of them.”
—Kimberly Koro, Senior Vice President, Qualcomm Technologies

The Shift is compelling and delightful; it is easy to read and brings to mind so many memories, so many real-life situations that I could identify with—not just nursing home situations but in my daily life as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, employee.”
—Stacy Parkinson, SNF owner, attorney, and former First Lady of Kansas

“Delightful. Inspiring. Humbling.
The Shift will remind you that no matter your profession or life pursuits, we all interact with other people and must learn how to work together. The principles contained herein, if applied and practiced, will transform and enrich relationships and lead to a greater sense of satisfaction. This book belongs on the shelf alongside all the great business and self-improvement works of our time. It has changed the way I approach my colleagues and clients and helped instill in me a greater purpose for what I do every day. Read the book. Make the shift. Reap the benefits.”
—Darren Henderson, Founding Partner, Corient Capital Partners, LLC

“After decades as a SNF executive, I found
The Shift to be a wonderful and delightful book that should be required reading, not just for the leadership team, but for every CNA, nurse, housekeeper, social worker, and recreation therapist. Learning to see our residents, fellow employees, and family members as real people with real worth, instead of charges, problems, or duties, will change both their lives and ours. Thank you for an important and refreshing look at a calling worthy of our full hearts.”
—Todd Hansen, SNF administrator and former state health-care association president
