Pivot, Disrupt, Transform: How Leaders Beat the Odds and Survive is a mentally challenging journey for developing leaders.

What does it take for people to innovate their leadership? 

Author Marcia Daszko provokes new thinking in her book and presentations: Pivot, Disrupt, Transform, How Leaders Beat the Odds and Survive. Leaders of the future can choose to develop their natural leadership. There is a fork in the road. Some people will choose fads and "best practices" and the "way we've always done it" and struggle and fail. Others will choose to think strategically, plan, adapt, anticipate, disrupt, and ask, "What if we . . .?" They will experience success beyond their wildest dreams.

In this creative book, read what:

  • Leaders must STOP ( fads) that lead to failure; and what

  • Leaders must START (new thinking and actions); and

  • How to TRANSFORM to achieve great relationships and collaboration, innovation, a competitive edge, and success.

What leaders are saying about this thought-provoking book . . .

  • Vice Admiral Kevin P. Green, US Navy; VP, IBM (Ret.)

"Full of counterintuitive advice, Marcia’s messages in Pivot, Disrupt, Transform, How Leaders Beat the Odds and Survive, will shake up your thinking about what it takes to be a leader."

  • Daniel Pink, Best selling author of DRIVE, TO SELL IS HUMAN and WHEN

“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, “Pivot” 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

“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 Combat Commander, Harvard MBA

Pivot, Disrupt, Transform” helps readers 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.”

“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. Pivot, Disrupt, Transform 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

“Pivot, Disrupt, Transform” is astonishing and leads you to a whole new world. You might hesitate to drop your old way of thinking that you learned at school or the way that you work. But 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!”

“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.”
