True leadership isn't a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than "the boss" people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership - where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.
The 5 Levels of Leadership are:
Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.

Yes to those who don't yet understand leadership levels. Those who already have the knowledge I would not recommend reading.
Disliked the referrences to faith (too often).
Would be better relating to leadership from business rather than faith and sport.
A Powerful arsenal in my leadership toolbox. Dr. John Maxwell delivers again . What a bonus having Dr. Maxwell audibly guide you on your leadership development journey.
John C. Maxwell is a leader of leaders. He breaks it down piece by piece. I strongly encourage leaders to study the book - but more importantly apply the concepts.
Again, read it at least two or three times, and get the audiobook to reinforce the concepts. If you get the physical book, it allows you to highlight key passages.
Having this book on Audible was a Godsend for me - because I was able to listen to it on my daily commute, in addition to trying to read it in book form at every free moment. Good book, excellent content, and it really opens your eyes to not only the people around you, but to things that you, yourself do or do not do. I can highly recommend this out of all of the books that we read in class.
The book challenges the readers to grow in their leadership, and demonstrates that there are levels of leadership. Growing in leadership is a life long pursuit and well worth it.
