Maxwell doesn't know the difference between leadership and success. He makes the distinction when he defines leadership but doesn't recognize his own departure from his defining criteria. Most noteworthy is his failure to recognize the "influence" required to get your subjects to follow you to their deaths. According to Maxwell, leadership is nothing more and nothing less than influence.
Also, nowhere in the editor or consumer reviews did they clue us into the fact that Maxwell's thirty years of leadership skills largely originate in the churches that he pastored. I'd hardly attribute peoples willingness to follow religious leaders to leadership skill.
Don't go here unless you want hear one man's rationalization of how his contribution as a leader created success. Actually, some of those stories were entertaining.
I feel John Maxwell is one of the premier authors and teachers on leadership in the world. I have read a half dozen of his books and they are all outstanding.
Very good information for leaders. Just the way people can be sometimes causes you to lose sight. Listening to this gives you a new lease on what your objectives are when you lose sight.
as I study my degree in leadership, I found this book to be the core of what every leader should know..
I can understand why this is an essential leadership text. Concise, without being overly simple. Dr. Maxwell offers keen insight into what it takes to become and stay a great leader.
This book is extremely helpful. As a young entrepreneur, growing in leadership is a huge area of focus. By being able to understand where and how to grow will propel my organization.
