John Maxwell never disappoints and this book is no exception. Extraordinary depth and he nicely ties in his traditional topic of leadership. Maxwell's personal growth is present through the development of his books, and as an author has the utmost integrity. Great read, great knowledge and awesome experience 10/10.
This book provides a good reminder of the activities required to continue to grow personally and professionally. However, there is not much new or groundbreaking, and I felt the topic could have been covered in about half the length of time.
It's my first, but I love his voice and who better to communicate what he wrote than the author himself, especially since he's a master communicator.
I'm so glad he decided to share his growth strategies that he's picked up along the way. I bought the book as a workbook so I can make notes in the margins.
Great book! I'm recommending to all my friends and colleagues.
He's a subject matter expert.
It's his content and he's an engaging speaker.
I enjoyed the book but John Maxwells narration is a bit slow and boring.
none..its not that kind of book.
Sean Van Zant
Definitely in the top ten.
I liked the law of intentionality because it is so foundational for all the other laws, and anything else for that matter to stand on.
He was refreshing, lively, and knew how to emphasize the right points of all of the stories in the book.
To see the laws like strong guidelines to be followed, and to always be intentional about following them.
I listened to this book more than three times. I have given away several print copies of this book also. This audio book is a must listen to if you are serious about growth in any area of your life!
I have listened to other John Maxwell audiobooks and expected this one to be pretty good; however, it exceeded my expectations and I thought it was great! I heard John Maxwell talk about it on the EntreLeadership Dave Ramsey podcast. I am goal oriented and I recently got off track with my growth plans due to work and family problems. I felt overwhelmed and lost, yet I feel this audiobook has me back on track. Thanks John!
Right on target!
This is book is design to help with growth in whatever situation you may find yourself in and always John Maxwell is right on target with his insight into leadership development.
I always enjoy John's books and recommend them in training and development for leadership.
This one ranks pretty high on my list of self help motivational reads. I learned quite a bit.
There are not any characters in this book, but none are needed because this one is personally about you!
This is my first, but it won't be my last.
I totally enjoyed the "frog analogy" Mr. Maxwell shared while speaking about people who do, and I will share with you:
5 frogs were sitting on a log, 4 decided to jump off how many was left?
I am a happy, contented person. Love reading sci fi fantasy novels and well written business books.
#1 in my self development category
Curiosity is key to life long learning. The little girl keep asking her mother " why" until she get so frustrated and told her stop asking, and added, " no wonder curiousity kills the cat". Few minutes, the little girl went back to ask her mum " what question did the cat ask".
Seek out other curious people and network with them. This way we are able to learn something new everyday. Take time at end of day and evualate our experience.
I used to take down quotes, Interesting statements of value, I copied it down, but after a while lose them.Now, like the book suggest, I am going to keep and organize them, so I know where to find them to re- read them again and again, or pass it along to friends who may need them. Some of the notes or saying had lifted and enpowered me. I can even draw from them when the situation is appropriate and right. Great tip!
Yes, I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because it breaks down the very things to focus on for growth.
John Maxwell puts it in easily identifiable ways of application.
