Publisher's Summary

In this thoroughly revised and updated 25th-anniversary edition of his now-classic work, John C. Maxwell reveals how to develop the vision, value, influence, and motivation required of successful leaders.

Twenty-five years ago, John Maxwell published the book that forever transformed how we think about leadership. Developing the Leader Within You revolutionized the way leaders are made and in the process sold more than one million copies. Now John Maxwell returns to his classic text to include the leadership insights and practices he’s learned in the decades since the book first appeared. Thoroughly revised and with two completely new chapters, this new edition updates the foundational principles for transformative leadership that Maxwell has used as a leader for more than 40 years. No matter what arena you are called to - family, church, business, nonprofit - the principles Maxwell shares will positively impact your own life and the lives of those around you. New listeners as well as longtime fans of Maxwell and the original book won’t want to miss out on this one.

Charts and graphs that further illustrate Maxwell's principles are included in the audiobook companion PDF.

A must have for any level leader.

Would you listen to Developing the Leader Within You 2.0 again? Why?

Like Johns other books... they all inspire me to go back and listen to over and over.

What other book might you compare Developing the Leader Within You 2.0 to and why?

This compliments Johns other leadership books, and is similar to "The 5 Levels of Leadership." It's a must have addition to his collection.

Have you listened to any of John C. Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have many of Johns other books and he is simply a pleasure to listen to. He is actually my favorite narrator and author.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could easily listen to this in one setting if time permitted.

Any additional comments?

This is my 8th book by John Maxwell, and I can't emphasis my recommendation for this book (and his others) enough. "Developing the Leader Within You 2.0" is a home run...The book covers the 5 levels of leadership in great detail while simplifying the process. Rather than get into the details of the book - I will say this... Whenever I recommend anything on leadership development I ALWAYS direct them to John Maxwell - and this book will be my 1st recommendation no matter what level of a leader I'm working with.

No one like Maxwell

Maxwell reads this book with conviction and intention. I have been inspired once again by John’s insight and his ability to apply it to my life. His principles for leadership are both refreshing and challenging.

Life-changing

loved the book! It was relevant, encouraging, motivating! then the rhaetian made the content interesting and clear to understand. where I got stuck in my sinking during reading, the audio help push me past the area and focus my thoughts. and turned I have to go back Andre Reed some of the parts that needed emphasis.

A must read for those that want a foundation for developing leadership

What I liked most about this book was making development an exciting journey and uplifting the positives of change. It was also very conversational (a few laughs and natural human expressions here and there)

I would recommend this specifically to people that want to start developing their leadership but do not know where to begin. This book gives you fundamentals that you can put in to action right away.

This is my 1st time reading this book and I already know it is a book I will revisit consistently.

Brilliant

As an Executive Director with the John Maxwell Team, I am biased, but John’s books just get better. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
