Best of the bunch from Maxwell. You will not regret the decision to use the book to take your leadership attributes to the highest level.

Maxwell's vision is to groom people into talented focused individuals making a difference in their chosen professions. This work is an example of superior thinking and principle application (s).
Love to read, and Audible has made the two-hour daily commute enjoyable!
One of Maxwell's best. Description of the 5 levels of leadership (position, permission, production, people development and pinnacle) and overview of how each level builds on the others.
Maxwell goes in depth of pros/cons of each level, how to build on each level, and how to prepare to go to the next level. Often we are not aware of the transitions needed, but this makes it very clear.
In my work coaching, I see how some of this will help others.
Maxwell reading his own work was wonderful.
I would have hired another narrator. This guy sounds like Leon Redbone. (And yes, I know that 'this guy' is the famous John C. Maxwell). He just sounds bored. The content may have otherwise been interesting. It was also hard to take the self-assessment tests at the beginning while I was walking around town.
possibly. But not read by him. I missed half the content of this one because his voice was so off-putting.
Denzel Washington. He'd be like, "Oh really, Leadership??? You gonna come at ME?!?!? YOU KNOW WHO THE @$ I AM?!?!?"
Or the guy who narrated the Talent Code, John Farrell. That dude knows how to look at words and spit them out of him mouth just the way I like it.
I think it would be cool to add a 6th level of Leadership. Just to piss people off. You know, just when you think you're ready, he Miyagis you. "Not ready, Daniel-san!"
Very good book with lots of insight into leadership. John C Maxwell for a great job narrating.
At several moments, yes. However, it is far from amusing. This is some sort of a bitter medicine. The writer's style is poor and repetitive and you will sometimes feel yourself drowned in the many bullet/number points that will feel lost. Certainly the book could use a lot of editing in this regard.
The only thing that's worse that the writing style is the narration style. As a start, Maxwell seems to have some sinus problem or chronic cold that is causing his m's and n's to be muffled, not to mention the ever existing veil on most of the other letters. Moreover, he has quite an annoying way of narration, especially his
Yes, to find a more concise and to-the-point book that is well written and narrated.
Please, if you can't have the book re-written, the least you owe your listeners is to have other narrators read it. Please!
