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.

    "This book will make you a better leader."

    This book about the five levels of leadership is very detailed and informative. First the reader is introduced to the five levels, then takes a more in-depth look into each level. Maxwell describes the upside(s) and downside(s) to each level and discusses best behaviors for a leader on that level. He also offers a helpful tool for leaders to use to determine their current level of leadership.

    There are a lot of great take-aways from this book. For me, one of the greatest take-aways is that, as a leader, you are not always on the same level with all the people you oversee. Rather, your level is unique to the relationship you have built with each person. Therefore, one of the most important aspects of leadership is putting time and energy into supporting and growing the people you oversee.

    If you are in a leadership position and you want to be better at what you do, you MUST read this book.

    "Love J.M."

    I really enjoyed this book because it was read by the author. it is much more impactful when you can hear their passion and sense their reasoning through their language and voice. I would recommend you buy the book and read and note take long because there are moments where he references a chart and a leadership test the readers can take. The audio does have a PDF of these thing, but you cannot note take on them and record your scores on the PDF.

    "Great for any leader at any level who wants grow."

    very well written and really easy to understand. I enjoyed every minute and will continue to listen to it over the years. I also will be going to a leadership seminar help by Mr Maxwell. Looking forward to reading all of his other books. go from level one to only having positional leadership to having the Pinnacle level. Growing people to growing leaders.
