Publisher's Summary

In Good Leaders Ask Great Questions, John C. Maxwell delves into the process of becoming a successful leader by examining how questions can be used to advantage. What are the questions leaders should ask themselves? What questions should they ask members of their team? He then responds to the toughest problems leaders have presented to him. Using social media, Maxwell offered the floor to followers with unanswered questions about what it takes to achieve their professional best, and selected 70 questions on the most popular topics, including:

  • How can I discover my unique purpose as a leader?
  • What is the most effective daily habit that any leader should develop?
  • How do you motivate an unmotivated person?
  • How would you work with a difficult leader who has no vision?

This book is a thorough, insightful response to those readers and anyone who feels they have plateaued on their journey to develop their ultimate potential. Every leader has room to grow, and the advice in these pages will help listeners assess their current position, and structure an effective plan to achieve their goals.

Not what I expected

Maxwell of course fills the book with great wisdom, but I was expecting to learn HOW a smart person (a leader) thinks of and asks great questions. Instead he gives answers to many different questions that people may ask, specifically regarding leadership. So while I was hoping to learn the thought process that would lead me to continually ask great questions of others, instead I learned about some common leadership issues and concerns. Very different. It's still a great book, full of insight and leadership advice, but just be mindful of that so that your expectations aren't misconstrued like mine were.

My favorite leadership book, thus far.

I have read over a dozen books of John Maxwell in my 30s so it's been a while since I picked up a book that he's authored. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. It never lost its momentum. And the bonus, because Maxwell is a fantastic narrator, the audio version is as if you are having a one on one mentoring session with him on a daily basis. This is invaluable.
If you are in a leader/manager role capacity, you need this book; If you are dealing with a difficult employee or boss, you need this book; etc. I emphasize NEED because not only does Maxwell walks you through the problem, he tells you how. His solutions are very much dialogue base driven. Thus far, this is my favorite book in leadership. It is exhaustive. It is concise. And it is very well written.

A Very Important part of Leadership

Asking questions is a vital part of leadership that is very seldom dealt with. This book was a great help to me.

Very powerful concept

The book captures many aspects of leadership than the title suggests. The concept is simple and can be put to practice in daily life

lessons in arrogance

Really didn't enjoy the self centred me me me my my my news of the author and at best his false modesty. couldn't finish and maybe I missed some gems but gutted to have wasted a few hours listening to him get increasingly arrogant as his story unfolded
