John C. Maxwell is a leader in business books. He has written numerous books on business, leaderships, relationships, attitude, and management. If you are delving into a topic either by necessity or for love of learning, it is worthwhile to look into the most prominent figures in the field. At the time I came across Maxwell’s books, I was deep into developing my leadership and management skills, and hence the two glimpses into the Maxwell perspective.Here are some of my favorite quotes:Trust as
Solid little book hitting the main ideas of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. But this wasn't just a condensed version. Maxwell delievers some new thoughts here, as well. It is good and only takes about an hour to read.
Short and sweet to the point leadership read. Some great points that make you think and help understand how to apply them to your everyday life. Whether you strive to be a leader or not, this book helps us understand how much influence we have on other people just through daily tasks.
I really like the 101 series of Maxwell's. They are easy reads and you get the meat of what his point is. They are practical, easy to read and understand, and realistic to apply.
Good thoughts. Nothing revolutionary.
To be frank outstanding and inspiring book. I strongly recommend everyone to read this book. I would like to share just a little sentence from the book. "A real leader knows the difference between being a boss and being a leader."
Read it, put it down for a day, and then read it again. I need more information but this is a nice, general base on which to build.
This was the first book I have ever read by John C. Maxwell and I really enjoyed it! This little book is only about 100 pages long and I read it in one sitting, but it took several hours because on almost every page I had to pause and take notes on various principles and insights that he taught that I thought were really very powerful and in some cases profound.Here are the notes I took, some are quotations or paraphrases from the book and others are just thoughts that came to my mind as I read....
John delivers the focal points of leadership in a bite size book you could consume in one sitting however when taking time to set aside notes it should take you longer. Video review on Instagram https://instagram.com/stories/jaredds...
Terrible book written about white men for white men with white men as examples. This book has dated views- go read something by a woman or person of color. Also, this guy is a friend of Billy Graham, and that is just the worst.
A good introduction to leadership, like all his books. Good book to recommend to young people. My only complaint, like with all his books, is the overt christianity. The book would be just as good, and approachable by a wider audience, if he deleted the handful of christian references.
Nothing new here if you’ve read any leadership literature before. Would be a good starting place for someone with little experience in or knowledge of leadership basics.Maxwell’s stuff always sounds the same to me.
Q-Give one quote from the book that impacted your thought process and describe how.A-When asked if great leaders are born, John Maxwell answers, “Why of course! I have never known a leader who wasn’t born first.”Q-Which co-worker would you recommend this book to?A-I would recommend this book to anybody who is in a leadership role-Department Heads, Leadership Team Members, etc.Q-Rate this book on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest rating.A-8-John Maxwell is one of my all-time favorite authors
I didn't like this book too much, because by the time I got a little ways into it, I started REALLY not liking the author, which discredited the advice he was giving. I liked his historical little stories about the startups and leadships of now huge companies, but I didn't like that he also talked briefly about the growth of his Mega-Church with thousands and thousands of followers, like convention-center churches and $7.8 million fundraisers for a new facility. That is nuts, and because of that...
I was hoping it was more motivational. Some of the examples did not go well with the chapters. It felt like this book was just thrown together to meet a deadline. I'll probably re-read it and see how it goes.
Surprising quick read that has depth.Maxwell discusses what Leadership is, and how to influence and become a leader. He focuses on Development, Traits and Impact of a leader, including leaving a legacy. Don't be fooled by the short length.
This is book is awesome. so much I have let on being a lead and leading others and still learning!!!
Whatever you will accomplish is limited by your ability to lead others. It's said that in our life we have influence over ten thousand human beings throughout our lives and since leadership has a multiplying effect it's staggering what legacy a leader could leave behind. 101 will help you improve, conquer and prosper! Nuggets of Truth Lead with tomorrow as well as today in mind Know and do the things that give high returns When the leader lacks confidence the team lacks commitment He who thinks
Short, easy read. A good refresher on the foundation of leadership. 1- self-discipline is the key to being a great leader. - Remove rewards until the job is done - provide rewards to eager beavers, not Goif offs - stay focused on the rewards, not the difficulty of the work - devote time to regular disciplined activities. What did you do to grow personally and professionally?2 - Pareto principle (20% of the time will produce 80% of your results)- spend time and resources on the 20% of employees a...
Three things demonstrate how myopic and outdated this book is in its conception of leadership: the fact that of all the people quoted on leadership or described to prove a point about leadership, 57 are men and 2 are women; this quote: "A truly valuable vision must have God in it. Only He knows your full capabilities"; and the fact that he uses baby boomers as an example of "younger people." (This book was published in 2002.)This little book is a cliché- and buzzword-ridden mess. "To be a succes...
General, and good, leadership advice. As with all such books, the examples don't always epitomize the leadership skill being discussed. Without the stories, any such book on leadership would just be a list of aphorisms. I believe the greatest strength of this book are Maxwell's discussion of leadership in terms of trust (Chapter 5), levels of leadership: position, permission, production, development, personhood (Chapter 8), and the need for leaderships to have a succession plan (Chapter 10). Per...
Well written book , easy to understand as well very short. writer encouraging reads to get acquire leadership skill which he believe it can be taught, he briefly explain how a person can be leaders, importance of leadership skill and levels leadership, if you never read leadership book before this for you . This is one of my favorite quotes "The higher you want to climb, the more you need leadership. The greater the impact you want to make, the greater your influence needs to be. Whatever you wi...
I was only in Grade 11 and i was appointed in the youth leadership at Church,which made me the youngest among the leaders and i was afraid and not sure but this Book really helped me with all the queries i had on Leadership.With its knowledge and insight i later became JETS Club President and Head Boy the following year.It definitely is a must read for anyone with the responsibility to lead.
This is basically a cliffs notes version of Ideas from Maxwell’s leadership books. If you’ve already read a lot by him, this could be a good refresher since it’s really short and succinct. If you haven’t read much of his stuff, this is a great overview. Could even be really useful as a sort of outline for teaching key concepts of leadership that you could then expand on. Overall, a handy resource if you’re looking for a short concise Maxwell book.
It's short and sweet. Perhaps the ideas on it are pretty much what you would expect, common sense business speak. I found it to be a good starting point for my personal development, but I have issues with the religious conservative ideology that makes up the framework of the thinking of Mister Maxwell.All in all, not a bad read with lots of pointers that help organise your personal journey in leadership and team management.
This was a very short and enjoying read...But I think that the author was a little repetitive and, in some cases this stressed me out, but there was some histories that made me so excited. For example the first one was about how was created MCDONALD'S and I was just, really really surprised. BTW maybe if there was less things repetitive I would give it 4 stars but, in general was an interesting book
To be honest, when he said he was going to keep the book short in order to provide the meat of the ideas and not much else, I had far higher expectations than I should have had.It wasn't Earth shattering information, which sucked, because I am really interested in reading a "hot to" book on ways in which to practice leadership.
I have actually read this book a couple of time before because it is a great leadership book to read every now and then. Kind of a get back to basics thing. This is one of the three books I recommend for new leaders to read. The other 2 are Lean In by Cheryl Sandberg and It Worked for Me by Colon Powell. The second book actually has a longer title.
I always love John Maxwell & this book did not disappoint. For a busy, working mama of two you children this quick read was just perfect for fitting into the (few) quiet moments of my life. I love that his concepts are easy to understand and are really rooted in two key things - consistency & perseverance.
