Overview

JUMP! brings a fresh voice to the complex and difficult process of creating and sustaining meaningful change. Based on the principles of quantum mechanics, spiritual practices, ancient philosophy, and sound leadership, JUMP! is both fiction and non-fiction—including both a leadership fable and a process model. JUMP! is based upon decades of successful consulting and facilitation assignments across the globe for organizations, for teams, and for individuals alike. It is filled with transformational change secrets and time-tested processes that inspire readers to break free of their “status quo quagmires” and feel powerful and courageous related to change. Competitive Advantage: Most change management books are long on theory, and often get lost in case studies. Tipton’s message provides strong emotional and intellectual connections for readers—and delivers immediately-useful advice about making real progress. JUMP!’s leadership fable is a compelling, inspiring story steeped in real-life wisdom. Some early readers have described the fable as a “perfect business vacation book all by itself.” JUMP!’s process model is a comprehensive depiction of the actual consulting practices and tools used in Tipton’s JUMP! Innovative Change Model™. The model includes specific process maps, templates, detailed facilitation instructions, as well as a links to access additional details online. Target Audience: JUMP! provides the most benefit to just about anyone who finds themselves uncertain about the future – from an individual who is in the middle of a life or career transition, to executive teams of organizations looking for new approaches to delivering outstanding results. While it is categorized as a business book, some of the most positive feedback is from early readers who are in the “what might the rest of my life hold for me” category. Why Read JUMP?: It’s no longer okay to just “get ahead” – the world is moving too quickly for the old, incremental approaches of the past. We need rapid, meaning-filled, powerful tools to help us move – to get ahead and STAY ahead of the curve. We also need to develop a new relationship with the status quo. Too often our conditioned responses and historical views become the tarpits of oblivion, tethering our dinosaur-like bodies to them. The past does not have to predict the future – and a new relationship with the status quo is very important. Third – new challenges mean new tools. I’ve incorporated some powerful tools into JUMP!, and the book (along with the associated website – OurJUMP.com) give readers a modern, fresh, and extraordinary set of tools.

Editorial Reviews

Brian O'Malley
“It’s the four-wheel drive with a quantum winch to get your team unstuck! It’s about becoming that honest, transparent, and authentic organization that fills your heart and excels.”
Zane Safrit
“I found JUMP! to be a compelling read for several reasons: Part fable, part user’s manual, part educational resource, part inspiration...and it shares a great story we all can relate to, it is well-written and its source is the wellspring of caring and desiring to help with his real-world talents and skills.”
Keith Okano
“Bob’s use of Lencioni-esque storytelling really helps to provide depth to the difficult process of change and innovation. Plus, he also offers a practical framework and exercises to practice the JUMP! concepts and methods.”
Chris Vaughan, PhD
“JUMP! sneaks up on you. It is a great read that makes deep ideas approachable, but it also makes them stick with you. I found myself thinking back to it again and again in my own life and work and going back to certain pages with a whole new perspective. It is a book about change that actually changes things.”
Larry Shutzberg
“Bob Tipton does it again! His latest masterpiece, JUMP! , is a road map for successful transformation revealed through a riveting tale of discovery and human triumph. I was hooked from the Introduction to the Appendix and read JUMP! in a single sitting.”

    Outstanding! A Fresh Look at Change!

    If you have chaos or uncertainty in your life (and who doesn't!), Robert Tipton's book provides a valuable roadmap on how to harness the great creative forces in play during times of change . . . and maybe most importantly, how to stay sane and balanced in the process! His blending of change management, psychology, leadership theory and quantum mechanics provides a fresh, new approach to many old, common quandaries we all face . . . relationships, jobs, careers, mid-life crisis, retirement, etc.

    Tipton weaves a great story that illustrates his theories on change - this made the more analytical explanations very accessible and easier to put into practice in my own life. As I read Jump!, I saw that I was holding on to beliefs and patterns that had gotten me stuck in the first place. Read Jump! and you'll quickly come to realize you may actually be fighting against many of the forces that can bring you the change you desire! - Dan Clemens, author of A Perfect Season
