Lift - Quinn


We all want to have a positive influence, but this often fails - despite our best efforts - as a result of feelings or thoughts of which we are not even aware. In the book Lift Quinn described four mindsets which enable you to have positive expectations and influence over every aspect of your life, both at work and at home.

The four mindsets are:
  1. Other-focussed:
    I see others as people with legitimate needs, feelings and wishes
  2. Internally-directed:
    I try to be aware of any lack of integrity that I could manifest and try to eradicate it.
  3. Purpose-centred:
    I want to achieve extraordinary results.
  4. Externally open:
    I am flexible and I want to learn new things.
