Publisher's Summary

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:

  • 1. Position - People follow because they have to.
  • 2. Permission - People follow because they want to.
  • 3. Production - People follow because of what you have done for the organization.
  • 4. People Development - People follow because of what you have done for them personally.
  • 5. Pinnacle - People follow because of who you are and what you represent.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Used this book in a Leadship Development course"

    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.

    "Great book for the leader"

    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.

    "A manual for all leaders"

    This book has been one of the best books I have ever listened to. So much information! Maxwell's speaking voice is easy to listen to without feeling lectured or bored.
    I really learned about myself and how I can be a better leader for not only my team but as a human being.
    I look forward to listening to more of Maxwell's books.

    "Great Values but..."

    I enjoyed almost every part of this book. I do wonder if people of similar faith as John think that non faith individuals like me can reach level 5 leadership. At the end it seems as though a lot of emphasis is placed on faith over actual being a great leader who believe in the humanity of other people... I will keep wondering
