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.

Tom JamiesonSarasota, FLAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5THE 360-DEGREE LEADER BY JOHN C. MAXWELLAugust 14, 2012Tom JamiesonSarasota, FLAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5With 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 â€” 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 â€” 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.

NateTampa, FLAge: 25-34Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Great for a young leaderDecember 7, 2011NateTampa, FLAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Ever 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.
