Publisher's Description

Don't wait for that promotion!

Start leading NOW... right where you are!

What's the number one question leadership expert John C. Maxwell is asked while conducting his leadership conferences?  "How can I implement what you teach when I'm not the top leader?"

Is it possible to lead well when you're not the top dog?  How about if the person you work for is a bad leader?  The answer is a resounding yes!  

Welcome to The 360° Leader.  People who desire to lead from the middle of organizations face unique challenges.  And they are often held back by myths that prevent them from developing their influence.  Dr. Maxwell, one of the globe's most trusted leadership mentors, debunks the myths, shows you how to overcome the challenges, and teaches you the skills you need to become a 360° leader.

If you have found yourself trying to lead from the middle of the organization, as the vast majority of professionals do, then you need Maxwell's insights.  You have a unique opportunity to exercise influence in all directions-up (to the boss), across (among your peers), and down (to those you lead).

The good news is that your influence is greater than you know.  Practice the disciplines of 360° leadership and the opportunities will be endless... for your organization, for your career, and for your life.

Publisher's Weekly

In this latest treatise, leadership mega-guru Maxwell (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership) taps a rich vein of corporate angst: the plight of the middle manager, saddled with responsibilities but lacking real power, torn by conflicting tasks and time-management dilemmas, seething with thwarted ambition. As Macbeth shows, it's a predicament fraught with tragic potential, but the staid, platitudinous treatment given it by Maxwell and ghostwriter Charlie Wetzel drains away the drama. They generally counsel acceptance of limitations. Maxwell tells middle managers to work diligently in subordinate positions, support the CEO's vision, find the good in incompetent or malevolent leaders, infiltrate their bosses' emotional lives ("Listen to your leader's heartbeat.... What makes them laugh?... Cry?.... Sing?") and "stand up for your leader whenever you can." They can thus exert an unsung but crucial "influence" over higherups, while themselves practicing a higher, sublimated form of leadership by selflessly nurturing the potential of their own colleagues and underlings. Unfortunately, Maxwell's practical advice boils down to vague truisms ("when you find a problem, provide a solution") or clich s ("If your boss is a golfer, you may want to take up the game"). His bland injunctions to resignation, patience and self-effacement are unobjectionable, but also uninspiring. (Jan. 10) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    THE 360-DEGREE LEADER BY JOHN C. MAXWELL

    With more than thirty years of leadership experience under his belt, John Maxwell has written, most likely, his best work on the issue of leadership to date — The 360-Degree Leader.

    In this volume, Maxwell addresses the question of how to lead when you're not the one in charge. It is a challenging question, but Maxwell offers great insight along with the kind of practical advice for which he has come to be known.

    A good example of this comes in "Lead-up Principle #2 — Lighten Your Leader's Load." Maxwell asserts that one way to develop your own leadership skills while in the middle of an organization is to ask your leader how you can lift the load. Maxwell goes on to state that the way you add value to your leader is to ask three questions:

    "Can I say something you have said before to give you another voice?"

    "Can I say something you would like to say but can't, to give you a needed voice?"

    "Can I say something you haven't said yet to give you the first voice?"

    Overall, I can say with confidence that I would definitely recommend this book and, in fact, I already have. We have a leadership development program where I work. I facilitate the module that covers public speaking. I recommended this book to the leader of the program and it is now the required text for this cohort.

    This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in growing his or her ability to lead up, down, and across. By applying the practical principles found in these pages, one can increase his influence and makes himself into a more valuable team member.

    Ever wondered what it takes to make a great leader? Ever felt trapped by your position (or complete lack thereof) within your company? John Maxwell's book on how to lead effectively from wherever God has placed you within your company is the perfect tool to equip you to become a better leader. Within this quick and fascinating work, John helps the reader understand that your position isn't what stops you from leading, it is your mindset. That a great leader, is the man/woman who embraces the job he/she has today, and works hard to better those around them, and the company as well.

    I thought this book was very helpful for me, a young leader, who feels surrounded by older and wiser leaders. It helped me feel equipped to speak out in meetings, embrace ideas, and run in the areas where I may be gifted differently than those around me. The tools that John Maxwell gives throughout the book has helped me become a better leader, a better follower, and a more effective communicator.

    New York Times Best-Selling Author John C. Maxwell has spent years of his life teaching Leadership. I have many of his books and have attended his conferences. When this book was available for reviewing I was very excited to see what he would be offering in the 360 Degree Leader!

    The 360 Degree Leader shows you how to develop your influence anywhere in an organization. He teaches that you don't have to be at the top of an organization to lead. He speaks to the middle leader of an organization. In Section I he dispels 7 myths of leading from the middle of an organization. Section II covers 7 challenges the 360 degree leader faces. Section III covers the 9 principles the 360 Degree Leader practice to lead up. Section IV covers the principles the 360 Degree Leader practices to lead across. Section V covers The 7 Principle the 360 Degree Leader practices to lead down. Section VI covers the Value of the 360 Degree Leader which consists of 5 values.

    Each section has a review to make sure you understand the principle covered. Also included is a Special Section that shows how to create an environment that Unleashes 360-Degree Leader, Notes, the 360 Degree Leader Workbook and notes about the author. The reader is also offered to take a free assessment of their 360 Degree Leadership skills.

    If you are a leader in the middle who wants to be a better leader and wants to be a top leader in the future I recommend this book. For the top leader in an organization, this book could be useful to you. I feel this book can help you in any organization, especially business as well as your church. Enjoy!
