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 thought he offered a lot of highly useful information. However, when he denigrated the ambitions of his musical director, without offering any useful guidance on how the guy could find something at least close to what he wanted, I discovered I stopped caring about how wonderful this guy was (which he was careful to let us know, oh, fairly often). I guess support people aren't supposed to have ambitions beyond their station. I just wonder what why Maxwell would have told his wife if say, she'd wanted to become a stockbroker.
I tried to continue after that, but after he started explaining how great he was, and how he learned so much from other leaders (all of whom were male), then I felt he was no longer talking to me.
I'm sure there was lots of good information. But I was so turned off by how he treated his musical director that I really couldn't listen to him any more.
His performance was excellent. He has a great voice, and knows how to use it to deliver the material.
No. But it's nonfiction anyway.
This book exceeded my expectations and answered questions I've had for years on growth! If you are looking to grow, become and have your life changed this book provides the roadmap needed.
At the very beginning of this book the author states very clearly that you need to do with book with a group. Please heed this advice as you will get great information here, but you can get more with others pushing you. I did this book with two friends of mine that are both leaders where they work and in our community. I can’t express in a simple review about this book. I also can’t tell you in the space limited here all that you will learn. Just trust in that you will learn more here in a group then you will as an individual.
