Great book! Maxwell is an amazing leadership guru and will help you make the most of your leadership potential.
A great read for anyone in a leadership position or hoping to one day be.
John C Maxwell's books are always enlightening and this one is no exception. In this book he details how to grow the seed of leadership in your life.
All of John Maxwell's works contain eminently practical advice, presented in a warm style. This set of 2 audio cassettes is no different. Truly helpful to listen to!
This was an excellent book in learning the qualities of leadership and how to apply them in the workplace and in your own work situation. He gave good examples to follow though at times was very full of himself and seemed to be boasting. Some of the chapters were stories he used to prove his point but overall you will gain valuable knowledge and insight in to learning to become a great leader.
There are lots of gold nuggets of information in this book. If this is your first book on leadership, you'll love it. It's a great place to start. Among the important topics covered by Maxwell are how to build coalitions to effect change and how to nurture your employees to become leaders in their own right. Maxwell brings to bear psychological studies and anecdotes to motivate the reader to become a better leader. Perhaps the best part of this book are Maxwell's stories (Maxwell's leadership principles are backed up by humorous anecdotes from Benjamin Franklin, Abe Lincoln, and others).
I love this book. I got it for my husband after glancing at his wish list but then I beat him to it. I love the writing style, the concepts, the stories. This really is a great book and I had a hard time putting it down. Read this one! It will make your business better, as well as your family and personal life.
