    "Leaders will want their employees to read this"

    This book has some great material within. I have read a number of books about leadership over the past couple of years, and I believe this one to have a lot of the important material from each placed into one book. In addition, this book gives good tips on how to work with other ambitious people and still succeed, as well as how to really help your superiors in a way that helps you and your organization. This book is great for anyone who wants to succeed as a professional

    "Fantastic Read"

    This book applies to everyone because it addresses how to lead people from above, below, and next to you. It's a very holistic approach to managing people like your boss, your co-workers, and your underlings. Read it and you'll be more effective.

    The more I listen to this packed-full-of-soon-to-be-classic I realize that Dr. Maxwell's teachings apply and will help in every aspect of my life. It is only up to me to follow his guidance. Thanks, Doctor.

    "Waste of Time"
    Would you try another book from John C. Maxwell and/or Wayne Shepherd?

    Sure


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to download the audio, because I didn 't want to wait for the mail, but Audible.com is protecting the file so bad that I can 't put it on my portable device. So difficult to work with, I can 't believe it.

    I don 't have space for the app, but just a MP3 download is to much to ask I suppose...

    Really disappointed in the service of audible.com. Such a waste of Time & Money.

    "Interesting ..... for followers instead of leaders"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    yes, if he is aim is to become a team leader or middle manager and like to rub shoulders with superiors.


    Do you think The 360-Degree Leader needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I will be interesting to have a follow up at exec. level.

    "Excellent positioning from Mailroom to Boardroom"

    Well organized lesson on personal abillity/responsibility when working in any type of organization. More a value system with tools than a functional instruction.

    "Informative, easy to follow"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is packed with useful information that helps people become leaders. It is easy to understand and easy to follow.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 360-Degree Leader?

    The chapter on learning how to lead across to your peers was the most useful. So often we think that leading is giving orders to others. This chapter was very insightful into how to influence your peers and thus lead them without it feeling that way.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a book on what it takes to become a leader, this is it!
